Forensic DNA Fingerprinting Genetics Biologicals

Expert was born on May 14, 1953. In the year 1966, he moved to New York City. There he attended George Washington high school. After graduating high school, Expert attended City College of the City University New York (CCNY) for his undergraduate studies. He received a Bachelor of Science in Biology – Genetics in August of 1974. He continued his educational career by completing a Master’s degree at [[New York University]]. He graduated with a Master’s of Science degree in Biology – Genetics in June of 1976. After completing his Master’s degree, Expert attended Fordham University for his Ph.D. in Biology – Genetics. After defending his thesis on Cytological, Cytogenetic, and Biochemical Studies on Insect Cell Lines Expert graduated with his Ph.D. in June of 1982. He then pursued postdoctoral research at The Rockefeller University in New York City as a part of the Department of Cell Biology from 1982 to 1984. He then continued as a Research Associate at New York Medical College in Valhalla, New York from 1984 to 1985. In 1985, he accepted an assistant professorship at Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Worcester, Massachusetts. In 1986 he became an Assistant Professor at Florida International University in Miami, Florida. In 2007 Expert became a ’Full Professor at the Medical School at Florida International University.

Professional Career

From 1986 to 2013, Expert taught a variety of courses, wrote multiple successful grants, and supervised his research laboratory of graduate students. Expert has published over 200 full-length articles in peer-reviewed journals. He has also received various NIH Research Grants for multiple years of funding.

In his book ‘’Genomes, Evolution, and Culture: Past, Present, and Future of Humankind’’, Expert notes: “This book combines recent information and discoveries in the field of human molecular biology and human molecular evolution. It provides an interdisciplinary approach drawing together data from various diverse disciplines to address both the more classical anthropological content and the current more contemporary molecular focus of courses. His second book Ancestral DNA, Human Origins, and Migrations describes the genesis of humans in Africa and the subsequent story of how our species migrated to every corner of the globe. Different phases of this journey are presented in an integrative format with information from a number of disciplines, including population genetics, evolution, anthropology, archaeology, climatology, linguistics, art, music, folklore and history. His third book deals with the technological and sexual interactions between modern humans and ancient Homo sapiens.


Research focus:

During his 45 years in the field of genetics, Expert has a variety of research interests such as: chromatin organization and function structure and function of small nuclear RNA isoforms and middle repetitive elements and their effect on gene regulation and development DNA fingerprinting in humans and strains of silk moth molecular biology phylogeny of AIDS, human evolution, population genetics, legal forensic DNA fingerprinting, as well as detection and characterization of autoimmune diseases. Expert was also a participant in the diversity aspect of the Human Genome Project.


Currently, Expert is a Visiting Scholar at Colorado College in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He continues to publish papers in his areas of interest while also being an ‘’’active forensic DNA fingerprinting consultant.’’’
