Forensic DNA Mixture Interpretation Workshop & Live Webcast

On April 12, 2013, NIST will host a free eight-hour workshop & webcast on interpreting forensic DNA mixtures in casework.  Topics to be covered include: why working with DNA mixtures is difficult, what approaches are being used around the world to cope with complex mixtures, how validation studies should guide mixture interpretation protocols, and what statistical methods are appropriate in different situations. Multiple examples will be worked during the workshop/webcast to illustrate the fundamental principles of mixture interpretation.
