The Pittsburgh City Council proclamation states, "Twenty years ago, Dr. David and her husband, Dr. Mark Perlin, adapted their TrueAllele technology to automate STR DNA interpretation. This proprietary tool has been used many times to protect women from harm. Most notably, TrueAllele was used to convict, with statistical certainty, a Pittsburgh offender who committed a gruesome double-homicide."
