Defending against DNA mixture evidence
DNA mixtures, which come from two or more people, are important in criminal proceedings. Mixture evidence can help prove guilt or innocence.
The data from DNA mixtures are often misinterpreted, leading to inaccurate match statistics. Cybergenetics TrueAllele® computer analysis is accurate. TrueAllele objectively interprets mixtures to produce reliable DNA match statistics.
In June, Cybergenetics Dr. Mark Perlin spoke at the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers Forensics College at Cardozo Law School in New York. His half hour talk described the DNA mixture problem through the Darryl Pinkins exoneration. Dr. Perlin showed how defenders can use TrueAllele to vigilantly safeguard the rights of the accused.
