This second paper on the authors’ analysis of 102 two-person DNA samples from simulated mixtures and male-female and male-male post-coital specimens reports the data on profile characteristics of these samples and likelihood ratios (LRs) generated using semi- and fully continuous systems.

Abstract

This second article follows up on the findings presented in the author’s first paper entitled, “Probabilistic Approaches to Interpreting Two-person DNA Mixtures from Post-coital Specimens.” In the current paper, both log10 LRs from true and non-contributor tests are presented. These data may supplement studies that compare the performance of different probabilistic systems for DNA evidence interpretation. (publisher abstract modified)
