        (1) the genetic profile from forensic evidence that
    
was secured in relation to the trial against the genetic profile of the defendant,
        (2) the genetic profile of items of forensic evidence
    
secured in relation to trial to the genetic profile of other forensic evidence secured in relation to trial, or
        (3) the genetic profiles referred to in subdivisions
    
(1) and (2) against:
            (i) genetic profiles of offenders maintained
        
under subsection (f) of Section 5-4-3 of the Unified Code of Corrections, or
            (ii) genetic profiles, including but not limited
        
to, profiles from unsolved crimes maintained in state or local DNA databases by law enforcement agencies.
    (b) If appropriate federal criteria are met, the court may order the Department of State Police to request the National DNA index system to search its database of genetic profiles.
    (c) If requested by the defense, a defense representative shall be allowed to view any genetic marker grouping analysis conducted by the Department of State Police. The defense shall be provided with copies of all documentation, correspondence, including digital correspondence, notes, memoranda, and reports generated in relation to the analysis.
    (d) Reasonable notice of the motion shall be served upon the State.
