LFTDI Presents Developmental Validation of NOCIt at NEAFS

Integrating Validated A Posteriori Probabilities on the Number of Contributors into Forensic Interpretation Pipelines for Full DNA Profile Interpretation will be presented at the 2019 NEAFS conference in Lancaster PA by Dr. Catherine M. Grgicak.

Here she will summarize the developmental validation of NOCIt – a software that renders the a posteriori probability distribution on the number of contributors to complex DNA mixtures – with a large-scale forensically relevant dataset. Notably, Dr. Grgicak shall demonstrate how the APP is used to calculate a full weight-of-evidence (log likelihood ratio or LR) without the need to designate that a particular NOC explains the evidence.
