Toxicology is a study effects on the drugs and chemicals on biological systems. It deals with the application of toxicology to cases and issues where those effects have administrative or medico‐legal consequences, and the results are likely to be used in court. It is a modern science, based on published and widely accepted scientific methods and practices, for both analysis of drugs in biological materials, and interpretation of those results. Many of the employs have been derived from innovations in clinical medicine and academic laboratories throughout the world. Forensic toxicologists work with pathologists and coroners is to establish the role of alcohol, drugs and poisons in the causation of death. The presence of drugs and chemicals in blood and tissue samples were identified by the toxicologist. Pharmacology is the study of medicine and biology concerned with the study of drug action, where a drug can be broadly defined as any man-made, natural and endogenous (from within body) molecule which exerts a biochemical and/or physiological effect on the organisms (sometimes the word pharmacon is used as a term to encompassthese endogenous and exogenous bioactive species).

Scientific humanities are the use of the anatomical exploration of human sciences and its different subfields, including measurable antiquarianism and criminological taphonomy, in a legitimate setting. A scientific anthropologist can aid the recognizable proof of expired people whose remaining parts are disintegrated, consumed, disfigured or generally unrecognizable, as might occur in a plane crash. Measurable anthropologists are additionally instrumental to the examination and documentation of genocide and mass graves. Alongside scientific pathologists, measurable dental specialists, and manslaughter agents, Criminological Anthropologists generally affirm in court as master witnesses. Utilizing physical markers exhibit on a skeleton, a scientific anthropologist can possibly decide a casualty's age, sex, stature, and family line. Notwithstanding recognizing physical qualities of the individual, criminological anthropologists can utilize skeletal variations from the norm to possibly decide reason for death, past injury, for example, broken bones or medicinal methods, and in addition infections, for example, bone tumor.
The techniques used to personality a man from a skeleton depends on the past commitments of different anthropologists and the investigation of human skeletal contrasts. Through the accumulation of thousands of examples and the investigation of contrasts inside a populace, estimations can be made in view of physical attributes. Through these, an arrangement of remains can possibly be recognized. The field of measurable humanities developed amid the twentieth century into a completely perceived legal forte including prepared anthropologists and also various research establishments gathering information on decay and the impacts it can have on the skeleton.

Forensic analytical chemistry is to defined the analytical chemistry as it pertains to law. We recently taught a course that covered many facets of forensic sciences such as drug analysis, toxicology, trace analysis, arson analysis, and DNA/serology. Guest lecturers were used to cover topics such as methods in crime scene investigation, the studies involves the trace evidence, and the role of the forensic pathologist. The material was presented to illustrate "real world" applications of analytical chemistry. Forensic chemistry is subjected to serves as a palette from which we can stimulate the interests and abilities of our students. With the backdrop of forensic decision-making, the real world relevance of chemical measurements is obvious to students.
