We propose to quantify the accuracy of a likelihood-based estimator that was recently proposed for the determination of the number of contributors to a DNA mixture, when genetic data alone is considered [H. Haned, L. Pène, J.R. Lobry, A.B. Dufour, D. Pontier, Estimating the number of contributors to forensic DNA mixtures: does maximum likelihood perform better than maximum allele count? J. Forensic Sci., in press]. Using Bayes' theorem, we derive a formula for the calculation of the predictive… CONTINUE READING
