A natural disaster strikes.  Families are separated.  One application of biotechnology can help bring the families back together.  DNA geneticsfingerprinting can identify people at the genetic level.  And it allowed the child above, called Baby 81 by rescue workers, to be reunited with his parents months after a tsunami, or tidal wave, devastated many parts of Southeast Asia.
