A gamma model for DNA mixture analyses

Abstract:
We present a new methodology for analysing forensic identication problems involving DNA mixture traces where several individuals may have contributed to the trace. The model used for identication and separation of DNA mixtures is based on a gamma distribution for peak area values. In this paper we illustrate the gamma model and apply it on several real examples from forensic casework. © 2007 International Society for Bayesian Analysis.
