DNA results in a day?

How about a year. Or three years.

Or as in an Oregon case reported today: "Police analyzing DNA have identified a 56-year-old man whose remains were found last January.... His DNA was sent to an FBI lab last spring. Depending on caseloads and priorities it takes from six months to three years to get back results."

Yeah, that would make CSI real exciting.
