Cybergenetics providing criminal justice services for DNA evidence during COVID-19 pandemic
Computers can continue to interpret complex DNA evidence, even when human activities are disrupted. Cybergenetics is open during the coronavirus shutdown – receiving DNA data, inferring genotypes, reporting match statistics, and preparing for court.
TrueAllele® probabilistic genotyping –
- Automation inputs all the DNA data, without applying human thresholds.
- Thoroughness ensures consideration of all genotype possibilities.
- Accuracy delivers the correct likelihood ratio, based on the evidence.
- Objectivity eliminates human decisions that can affect the match result.
- Neutrality can statistically include or exclude suspects, depending only on the data.
- Error assessment enables reporting of all DNA information, without arbitrary cutoffs.
- Databases connect crime scene to crime scene to solve unsolved crimes.
Prosecutors and defenders alike rely on TrueAllele technology for a closer look at DNA mixtures, and low-level or degraded evidence. Police investigators and innocence groups depend on TrueAllele for greater DNA scrutiny that can implicate or exonerate.
Crime laboratories use TrueAllele in-house and send cases to Cybergenetics when they need more identification information. TrueAllele routinely transcends the artificial limits of human-restricted DNA interpretation.
While other activities have been suspended, now is a good time to get a second opinion that can answer your DNA questions. Know the answer™. Send your DNA data to Cybergenetics today for better justice through science®.
We hope that you, and everyone you care about, stays safe and well during these trying times.
