NIJ seeks proposals for quantitative studies of friction ridge skin pattern variations relevant to fingerprint and/or palmprint comparisons for the purpose of identification or exclusion. Criminal justice agencies use fingerprints and palmprints for comparisons to latent print impressions collected as evidence at crime scenes. The forensic science community seeks a more comprehensive understanding of the empirical basis of friction ridge impression evidence to extend its use and facilitate the work of the fingerprint examiner. This research may include examining the frequency of friction ridge structure combinations and distinctive patterns, the permanence of an individual?s friction ridge structures, the biological and environmental factors that affect friction ridge structures, or developing tools to statistically measure and evaluate the quality of print comparisons and the strength of print comparison data.
