Forensic Science

By John M Butler

The first variation of Forensic DNA Typing, published in 2001, through John Butler speedy demonstrated itself because the gold-standard reference for the sector. Over the subsequent ten years, the substantial volume of recent details exposed has led to this new quantity, Advanced subject matters in Forensic DNA Typing: Interpretation. This publication builds upon the former variants of Forensic DNA Typing books, yet with a spotlight on combination interpretation and statistical research and is a spouse to the bestselling Advanced themes in Forensic DNA Typing: Methodology, released in September 2011.

  • Provides forensic DNA analysts insurance of the an important subject of DNA mix interpretation and statistical research of DNA evidence
  • Worked combination examples illustrate the influence of other statistical ways for reporting results
  • Includes allele frequencies for twenty-four usual autosomal STR loci, the revised caliber coverage criteria which went into impact September 2011
