    TrueAllele works Chocolate cake was served Dr Perlin introduced Bayes probability as the way scientists update their beliefs based on data He described the STR technology used to generate DNA data He showed how genotypes are inferred objectively from data using Bayes law and are then compared to calculate match statistics The mixture evidence example came from the Boston Marathon bombing case where TrueAllele was used to separate and identify two brothers found in a five person DNA mixture inside a glove Cybergenetics presents TrueAllele solution at international NIST meeting The National Institute of Standards and Technology held an International Symposium on Forensic Science Error Management Detection Measurement and Mitigation in Washington DC Cybergenetics scientist Dr Mark Perlin gave a talk on Objective DNA Mixture Information in the Courtroom Relevance Reliability and Acceptance The narrated YouTube movie live audio slides is viewable from Cybergenetics website The talk begins with Bayes law as the way to update belief based on data Dr Perlin described DNA mixtures and STR mixture data He showed how TrueAllele objectively infers genotypes from data using Bayes law and then compares them without bias to calculate match statistics Legal relevance and reliability issues were discussed The mixture evidence example came from a Baltimore trial where TrueAllele was used to help convict Maryland rapist Nelson Clifford TrueAllele mixture analysis instrumental in Indiana innocence case The Indiana Court of Appeals granted Darryl Pinkins petition for successor post conviction relief Pinkins was convicted of a 1989 rape in Lake County Frances Lee Watson Director of the Wrongful Conviction Clinic at Indiana University School of Law filed the petition Cybergenetics pro bono TrueAllele work for the Innocence Project showed there were five people unrelated to the accused men in the DNA evidence as major or minor contributors Watson used these TrueAllele results to persuade the Indiana Court of Appeals that the crime scene evidence did not contain Pinkins DNA Cybergenetics scientist testifies in Australia trial about mixture of relatives In New South Wales Robert Xie is accused of bashing his brother in law Norman Lin Lin s wife Lily their two young boys and Lily s sister to death with a hammer like object in their home The Sydney court has heard how a stain found by forensic investigators on Xie s garage floor could be a DNA mixture containing blood from these five related victims Cybergenetics TrueAllele technology was used in this case to resolve DNA mixtures of relatives By separating a mixture into genotypes TrueAllele replaces complex statistical arguments with simple comparisons that juries can understand Cybergenetics scientist Dr Mark Perlin was in Sydney this June testifying about TrueAllele match results on DNA mixture evidence Virginia man pleads guilty to killing elderly Colonial Heights couple Joseph and Evelyn Bland Colonial Heights residents aged 84 and 80 were found dead in their Virginia home in January of 2011 Matthew Brady was arrested for the crime a week later DNA potentially linked items stolen from the home to Brady The 2010
