From the Huntington Herald-Dispatch:

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Marshall University’s Forensic Science program is getting a big boost with federal money sifting through the 2010 Commerce, Justice and Science Appropriations bill.

The DNA Laboratory will receive $4.575 million to continue DNA support and services to the state. The lab helps with DNA analysis for database development, forensic casework, parentage testing and training.

The program also will receive $855,000 for the Computer Forensics Initiative for continued infrastructure and training of specialized personnel to continue in the area of computer crime investigations that include Internet fraud, identity theft and child exploitation.

Sen. Robert C. Byrd helped in getting the appropriations.

Not sure if it's the same or not but this was just announced today and the other one was 2 months ago. This one is part of a bill and the other was a grant listed for $5.825 million for very similar things though.
