DNA mixtures are challenging not only at low template DNA level but also at highly balanced quantitative ratio. In this latter case, interpretation may be complicated by the joint action of combinatorial uncertainty and stochastic effects of the PCR. We explore this particular and so far little noticed aspect of mixture interpretation by first providing a complete quantitative combinatorial analysis of the two-person mixture model (2PM) at highly balanced ratio of contributors, and then by… CONTINUE READING
