Abstract:

The threat of Bioterrorism is frequently emerging as a result of rapid growth in technological skills. molecular biological sciences and biotechnology. The critical factor contributing to the scale of this problem is the increasing proliferation of transnational terrorists and their access to funding, equipment and skills for developing biological weapons. A bioterrorism threat must be identified and controlled to reduce adverse health consequences and prevent fatality. This article addresses the issue of risk of bio crimes and needs to forensic science to prevent the discharge of potentially hazardous microbes and what techniques can be employed by the investigators for their fellow citizens to ensure not to engage in dual use of medical research and act ethically because biological weapons can be used intentionally during the war and terrorism. Theoretically, the biological agent could be release with bad intention to dominate the public and gain power.
