Probabilistic Expert Systems for Forensic Inference from Genetic Markers

  title={Probabilistic Expert Systems for Forensic Inference from Genetic Markers},
  author={A. Philip Dawid and D. VAN BOXEL},
We present a number of real and fictitious examples in illustration of a new approach to analysing complex cases of forensic identification inference. This is effected by careful restructuring of the relevant pedigrees as a Probabilistic Expert System. Existing software can then be used to perform the required inferential calculations. Specific complications which are readily handled by this approach include missing data on one or more relevant individuals, and genetic mutation. The method is… CONTINUE READING
