DNA, Statistics and the Law: a cross-disciplinary approach to forensic inference
by Alex Biedermann (ed.)
Publisher: Frontiers Media SA 2014
Number of pages: 40
The articles in this volume aim to investigate, from an interdisciplinary perspective, the current understanding of the strengths and limitations of DNA profiling results in legal applications. The book places an emphasis on topics with a multidisciplinary perspective that explore statistical genetics for forensic scientists, case studies and reports, evaluation and interpretation of forensic findings, communication of expert findings to laypersons, quantitative legal reasoning and fact-finding using probability.
