    WHAT:             The National Academy of Sciences will release a report

                      United States: A Path Forward," reviews the state of the
                      forensic techniques--fingerprinting, firearms
                      identification and analysis of bite marks, blood
                      spatter, hair and handwriting--used in court
                      proceedings.

                      expert who can comment on the conclusions and

                      hair analysis.
