Santorico working and speaking on familial genetics database

Stephanie Santorico, Associate Professor of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences, has been working for the past year developing a Familial DNA Database Search System in collaboration with practitioners from the Denver Police Crime Laboratory and computer programmers from DRC Computers in Silicon Valley, CA. This newly developed, fully web enabled, secure database search system allows for DNA profile comparisons, including those that define familial relationships. The system evaluates genotypes derived from the CODIS STR markers with statistical ranking based on a likelihood ratio (LR). The method was compared to the SWGDAM-recommended method of Expected Match Ratios (EMR) and Estimated Kinship Ratios (EKR) through multiple simulated familial searches. Santorico will be speaking on personalized genomics at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science on Sept 17 at the Science Lounge event, see more details below.
