Revisão: Inglês Instrumental I - 08/04/13 Free at last! _________ 12 years in prison, a Texas inmate walked free on Jan. 17. The exoneration came courtesy of University of Wisconsin-Madison law students and professors – and DNA tests proving that Christopher Ochoa, now 33, was innocent of a 1998 rape ________ murder. Fortunately for Ochoa, evidence from the crime was still available for DNA fingerprinting, a simple test that can prove whether a biological sample did or did not come from a suspect. ______________, the arrival of cheap and fast DNA fingerprinting is overturning the quest to convict the guilty and free the innocent. ____________ technology is far more specific than earlier tests of antibodies in blood or semen. Terry Laber, who directed the blood laboratory at the Minnesota Department of Public Safety, says, “___________ DNA, you’d have a good suspect, and do all the tests you could do, and you’d end up with 30% to 40% of the population qualifying”.

A match, ___________, is “very powerful evidence”. 1) Circule os núcleos dos grupos nominais retirados do texto e dê a tradução/interpretação de cada grupo: a) University of Wisconsin-Madison law students and professors b) Biological sample c) The arrival of cheap and fast DNA fingerprinting d) Minnesota Department of Public Safety e) Specific DNA sequence 2) Indique a tradução das palavras abaixo levando em consideração os prefixos e sufixos estudados: a) arrival (linha 8): b) unlikely (penúltima linha do texto): c) extremely (penúltima linha do texto): d) powerful (última linha do texto): 3) Complete as lacunas do texto acima com os marcadores discursivos do quadro: therefore before nowadays after in fact and when 4) Complete o texto com as formas corretas do passado simples: I ___________ (have, af.) a tiring day yesterday.
