Inferring the number of contributors to mixed DNA samples

Presented by

Dan Krane, Professor of Biological Sciences, Wright State University

About this talk

Underestimating the number of contributors can have important bearing on forensic casework and is surprisingly common -- especially if analysts are allowed to disregard seemingly inconsistent data from some loci.
