TUZLA, BOSNIA HERZEGOVINA - JULY 13: Forensic anthropologist Laura Yazedjian of Canada examines a skull at the International Commission on Missing Persons' (ICMP) Podrinje Identification Project Center July 13, 2005 in Tuzla, Bosnia Herzegovina. At the center, forensic pathologists make the final determination on the identification of remains, comparing DNA samples with samples taken from family members of the missing. ICMP is using DNA samples to help identify remains from mass graves in Srebrenca in the former Yugoslavia. Some 8,000 Muslims, mostly men and boys, were slaughtered at Srebrenca in July 1995 by Bosnian Serb soldiers who had overrun the town located in the eastern part of the country. Of those 8,000, only 2,000 have been identified. Nearly 26,000 individual missing person samples have been collected in the area. Scientists compare the DNA samples with samples taken from living family members. ICMP pioneered the use of DNA for identifying missing persons on a mass scale. ICMP scientists are also helping identify the remains of victims of the Asian tsunami that claimed more 150,000 lives earlier this year. (Photo by Marco Di Lauro/Getty Images)
