DNA evidence can generate investigate leads for criminal investigations. However, much crime scene DNA evidence goes unused due to limitations of human DNA mixture review. TrueAllele® technology provides an investigative probabilistic genotyping database (IPGD) solution that uses all the data. An IPGD can connect suspects to crime scenes, and make DNA connections between different crime scenes. This talk describes cases, methods, and results from an IPGD study on over 150 DNA evidence samples taken from dozens of property crimes with over 70 references.
