Their DNA sequence will be % similar and it is almost impossible to distinguish their DNA. This is when fingerprinting comes in. The effectiveness of fingerprinting is limited.

      DNA profiling (also called DNA fingerprinting) is the process of determining an individual's DNA characteristics. DNA analysis intended to identify a species, rather than an individual, is called DNA barcoding.. DNA profiling is a forensic technique in criminal investigations, comparing criminal suspects' profiles to DNA evidence so as to assess the likelihood of their involvement in the crime. This book discusses how evidence is collected and analyzed, what clues can be obtained from a crime scene and a corpse, what happens at an autopsy, how a pathologist determines the time and cause of death, how DNA, toxicology, trace evidence analysis and .

        There was the hair sent to a DNA lab for results in 24 hours (only in the most fortunate cases can DNA be extracted from hair at all, and labs are perpetually overburdened). There was the arson examiner drawing conclusions from the stumps of a burnt house. And there were spatter patterns, fingerprints, tire tracks, and bullet casings. A book published in by J.C.A. Mayer, a German doctor, was the first to state that fingerprints are unique. He also used drawings of fingerprint patterns to support this claim. Loop Pattern.
