Argentina is turning to a DNA database to help identify victims from its "Dirty War" period 1976 and 1983 during which 12,000 people died or "disappeared." According to Britain's Guardian, the Argentine Forensic Anthropology Team recently received money to begin to use more sophisticated large-scale DNA sampling and computer software to identify 600 human remains from that time period. Argentine television advertisements are asking for relatives of the missing to give blood to be used for comparison.
