Helping stay executions in Harris County, Texas
Cybergenetics works on death penalty cases in Texas and elsewhere. TrueAllele computing accurately unmixes DNA mixture data into genotypes. Comparing genotypes produces easy DNA match statistics from hard data. This powerful information can provide new evidence to stay an imminent execution.
Based on the evidence, TrueAllele computing objectively implicates or exonerates. Identifying new information in old DNA can yield previously unreported findings. Newly reported statistical exclusions can unlink a defendant from DNA evidence. Newly discovered genotypes of other people can be searched in a DNA database to find the true perpetrator. Or these new genotypes can connect the DNA evidence to someone else.
A genotype is an individual's genetic composition. Scientists determine and compare genotypes for forensic identification.
