Nonindependence of matches at different loci in DNA profiles: quantifying the effect of close relatives on the match probability.

Abstract:

In comparing a particular DNA profile with that from an unknown (but distinct) individual, matches at different loci between the profiles will not be independent, even in a randomly mating population, because of the presence in the population of relatives of the individuals. The paper contains a theoretical analysis of the extent of this effect on the match probability, for profiling techniques which separately probe different loci. Naive calculation using the product rule could substantially...
