US government awards patent to Dr. Mark Perlin

Pittsburgh, PA

The United States Patent and Trademark Office awarded patent US9708642 on a "Method and system for DNA mixture analysis" to Cybergenetics Dr. Mark Perlin. This DNA mixture analysis is useful for finding criminals, and determines genotypes, mixture weights, and likelihood ratios. The process automates a tedious manual procedure, thereby reducing the cost, time, and effort involved in DNA forensic analysis.

"For two decades, Cybergenetics has been the world leader in automatically interpreting DNA evidence to obtain accurate match information," said Dr. Perlin. "Probability is an essential tool for solving problems that have more than one answer."
