This article presents details on two NIJ-funded grants that examine forensic DNA techniques and how DNA data are to be interpreted statistically.
As forensic DNA techniques become more widespread and complex, key questions arise about how DNA data are to be interpreted statistically. This article presents details of two NIJ-funded grants that have produced significant research in the statistical interpretation of DNA samples. This supported research has far-reaching implications for testing hypotheses using DNA evidence and expressing confidence in the conclusions reached.
