Jackson received a Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Mathematics, and Engineering Mentoring at the White House, African-American DNA Roots Project. Linkage of blacks of the Americas and Caribbean to their ancestral African families via mitochondrial DNA and Y-DNA analysis; Over the past twenty years I have served as forensic consultant for both police departments and defense attorneys in criminal and missing person [“cold cases”] investigations worldwide. For example, I am leading a forensic effort in partnership with the Tanzanian National Police to create an “anti-terrorism DNA database” that eventually will be accessible to African police departments.

Research Interest

My research focuses is in several overlapping areas:
1. The identification on novel human haplotypes and haplogroups among isolated peoples.
2. The development of rapid methods for the isolation and analysis of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) isolated from human skeletal remains.
3. The use of Y-chromosome polymorphisms to trace African-American and Jewish lineages
4. The regulation of housekeeping genes at the mRNA level in human prostate and breast cancers.
5. Alcohol and drug metabolism as they apply to criminal cases.

Particularly interested in using Y-DNA and mtDNA Advanced in three different research projects that converge on DNA analysis and human groups: The African-American DNA Roots Project, A study of Jewish Y-DNA Lineage, Creation of converging DNA databases
