Representing and solving complex DNA identification cases using Bayesian networks.
Presented at: 21st International Congress of the International Society for Forensic Genetics.
13-16 September 2005. Object-oriented Bayesian networks (OOBNs) can be used to model and solve a wide variety of complex forensic DNA identification problems, involving such complications as missing individuals, mutation, and null alleles. We provide a brief overview of the approach and illustrate its use. In particular, we investigate the effect on paternity ratios of allowing for silent alleles, and show that this can be substantial even when the probability of silence is very small.
