The first variation of Forensic DNA Typing, published in 2001, via John Butler fast proven itself because the gold-standard reference for the sphere. Over the subsequent ten years, the great volume of latest info exposed has ended in this new quantity, Advanced subject matters in Forensic DNA Typing: Interpretation. This ebook builds upon the former variants of Forensic DNA Typing books, yet with a spotlight on mix interpretation and statistical research and is a significant other to the bestselling Advanced issues in Forensic DNA Typing: Methodology, released in September 2011.
- Provides forensic DNA analysts assurance of the the most important subject of DNA blend interpretation and statistical research of DNA evidence
- Worked mix examples illustrate the influence of alternative statistical methods for reporting results
- Includes allele frequencies for twenty-four time-honored autosomal STR loci, the revised caliber coverage criteria which went into influence September 2011

As will be emphasized throughout this book, a forensic DNA laboratory should develop STR interpretation guidelines based upon its own validation studies. Information from STR kit and instrument manufacturers and results reported in the literature can be helpful. Practical experience with instrumentation and results from performing casework are also important factors in developing an interpretation strategy.
