Digital DNA (Deoxyribonucleic Acid) ID

If at birth, everyone donated a DNA sample, ideally sequenced in its entirety and stored digitally, then we would have a ID system to figure out who was present at a crime scene, a way of sorting out custody and parental responsibility, a fool-proof voter ID system, a medical ID system that works even if the body is nude, unconscious, dead or dismembered and a way of warning people of genetic health hazards to themselves and their potential offspring. Those benefits outweigh the drawbacks that mostly benefit criminals.
