Using previous DNA casework data to aid decision making in the process of DNA profile interpretation

Published:October 19, 2022DOI:


      In this study, a DNA decision support tool was developed. With this tool we aim to gain insight in what actions are performed with which (types of) DNA profiles in casework, to improve decision making by DNA experts in future cases.
