Filed under: News and Blogs,School — Annette @ 12:20 pm

From biochem:

O.J. Simpson was tested for 5 different VNTRs that are highly polymorphic (n varies a lot)
His DNA matched PERFECTLY 5 out of 5 times.
Probability: 1:700,000,000 (yes, seven hundred million)
Statistically, 6 people in the entire world would have the same pattern
