Practical Aspects of the Implementation of TrueAllele Casework

  • 18-Jun-2015

    As with many other forensic laboratories, the Virginia Department of Forensic Science has seen an exponential increase in the numbers of evidential items submitted for touch and wearer DNA analysis. These items, along with other evidence encountered in homicide and sexual assault cases, routinely result in complex DNA mixture profiles. In collaboration with Cybergenetics, Virginia sought a novel solution to assigning statistics to these complex mixtures. A short history of mixture statistics will be reviewed along with the steps towards implementation of TrueAllele Casework in Virginia.
