Match probability calculations for multi-locus DNA profiles.

Abstract:

The paper considers aspects of the match probability calculation for multi-locus DNA profiles and a related calculation which aims to assess the probability that a pair of profiles is concordant for the presence and absence of bands. It is suggested that levels of allelism and linkage for multi-locus profiles may be higher than reported in previous studies, and that comparison of bandsharing values between different studies is problematic. Our view is that the independence assumptions which u...
