Cybergenetics presents TrueAllele DNA interpretation studies at American Academy of Forensic Sciences meeting
Cybergenetics Chief Scientific Officer Dr. Mark Perlin gave two scientific presentations on the TrueAllele® Casework technology at the American Academy of Forensic Sciences meeting in Denver. His first talk described a DNA match statistic that could be computed in two steps, first by objectively inferring a genetic type (genotype) solely from the DNA evidence without reference to any suspect, and only afterwards comparing the genotype to a suspect genotype. The second talk was about DNA identification of human remains, and described TrueAllele computer kinship analysis methods that mathematically combined evidence and were used in Cybergenetics World Trade Center disaster reanalysis.
