Statistical DNA Forensics: Theory, Methods and Computation by Wing Kam Fung

By Wing Kam Fung

Statistical technique performs a key function in making sure that DNA proof is amassed, interpreted, analyzed and awarded safely. With the new advances in machine expertise, this system is extra advanced than ever sooner than. There are increasingly more books within the region yet none are dedicated to the computational research of proof. This publication provides the method of statistical DNA forensics with an emphasis at the use of computational concepts to investigate and interpret forensic evidence.Content:

Some common methods for testing for Hardy–Weinberg equilibrium are introduced in the following sections. 1 Observed and expected heterozygosities Consider the STR locus TPOX for the Hong Kong Chinese population (Wong et al. 2001). A sample of n = 275 individuals was taken and their DNA profiles were obtained. There are a total of k = 5 alleles at this locus. 2 summarizes the genotyping results and provides the number of individuals nij , i ≤ j, i, j = 1, . . , k, having genotype Ai Aj at that locus.

2) The offspring genotype proportions can be completely determined by the parental allele proportions. 2 TEST FOR HARDY–WEINBERG EQUILIBRIUM 25 ∗ ∗ + P12 /2 p∗1 = P11 = p21 + 2p1 p2 /2 = p1 (p1 + p2 ) = p1 , and p∗2 = 1 − p∗1 = 1 − p1 = p2 . In other words, the following equations hold for the relationship amongst the genotype and allele proportions of the offspring in the second generation: ∗ P11 = p∗2 1 , ∗ = 2p∗1 p∗2 P12 and ∗ P22 = p∗2 2 . 3) This demonstrates the Hardy–Weinberg law; the genotype proportions can be completely determined by the allele proportions using the product rule.

28) When H0 is true, with a large n, this statistic has a (approximately) chi-square χ2 distribution with k − 1 degrees of freedom (df), where k is equal to 6 for the above example. A usual rule of thumb is to have each Ei , i = 1, . . , k being greater than 5, in giving a good approximation of the chi-square distribution for the test statistic. The chi-square distribution is a continuous distribution, commonly used for goodness-of-fit tests. 28), if there are large discrepancies between Oi and Ei , then the test statistic T would be large and it casts doubt on whether the null hypothesis is true.
