If complex DNA profiles, conditioned on multiple individuals are evaluated, it may be difficult to assess the strength of the evidence based on the likelihood ratio. A likelihood ratio does not give information about the relative weights that are provided by separate contributors. Alternatively, the observed likelihood ratio can be evaluated with respect to the distribution of the likelihood ratio under the defense hypothesis. We present an efficient algorithm to compute an exact distribution… CONTINUE READING
