FOSW03 - Statistical Modelling of Scientific Evidence

A comparison of complex profiles analyzed with different software tools

The second part of this talk will document the creation and evaluation of ground-truth samples of increasing complexity. Variables include: the number of contributors, the amount of allele sharing, variability in template amount, and varying mixture ratios of contributors in mixed samples. These samples will be used to evaluate the efficacy of four open-source implementations of likelihood ratio approaches to estimating the weight of evidence: Lab Retriever (an implementation of likeLTD v2), LRMix Studio, European Forensic Mixture, and likeLTD v6. This work was initiated during the summer of 2016 in conjunction with the special semester at the Newton Institute devoted to Probability and Statistics in Forensic Science, and continue at the time of submission of this abstract. We look forward to presenting results “hot off the press” at this meeting.
