The sequencing of STR markers provides additional information present in the underlying sequence variation that is typically masked by traditional fragment-based genotyping. However, the interpretation of STR profiles generated by targeted sequencing

October 8, 2019
Peter Vallone, Sarah Riman, Jan Hannig
In this work we introduce a new statistical methodology for empirically examining the validity of model-based Likelihood Ratio (LR) systems by applying a general statistical inference approach called generalized fiducial inference [1]. LR systems are
