STRmix™ is a breakthrough for forensic analysts as it can assist investigations using DNA evidence that was previously considered too complex to interpret. The software has been developed by New Zealand Crown research institute ESR, with Forensic Science SA (FSSA).
STRmix™ includes a function that allows the software to match mixed DNA profiles directly against a database. This is a major advance for cases where there are no suspects and there is DNA from multiple contributors in one sample.
With STRmix™ you will be able to:
interpret DNA results faster
combine DNA profiles from different kits in the same interpretation
compare profiles against a person of interest and calculate a likelihood ratio (LR)
resolve previously unresolvable, complex DNA mixtures with no restriction on the number of contributors.
use more of the information in a DNA profile, and model any type of stutter
search complex, mixed DNA profiles against a database.
