Abstract

Forensic DNA typing often provides law enforcement agencies with statistically evaluated evidence. In the course of assigning such values statistical models come into use and calculations are conducted. Currently, these approaches partly differ among German DNA typing laboratories so that comparability of the weight of evidence is hampered. This heterogeneity should be avoided by harmonizing the general procedure of evaluating and reporting DNA typing results. In close coordination between a working group of forensic science institutes (police) and the German Stain Commission a set of national recommendations is presented to support DNA experts in terms of the evaluation process, the choice of the calculation approach and the verbal expression of statistical outcomes.
