Indiana talk on TrueAllele admissibility
Judges have accepted TrueAllele® as reliable DNA interpretation science in eleven (of eleven) challenges in ten states. Two such decisions last year were in Indiana. Dr. Mark Perlin's second IPAC talk (probabilistic genotyping series) reviews the June Daubert hearing held in State of Indiana v. Dugniqio Forest.
The drug possession case involved a four-person DNA mixture. At the hearing, Dr. Perlin discussed TrueAllele reliability for admissibility. He described to the judge (and later to the jury) how the computer system analyzes DNA evidence.
