Assessing Weight-of-Evidence for DNA Profiles is an excellentintroductory text to the use of statistical analysis for assessingDNA evidence. It offers practical guidance to forensicscientists with little dependence on mathematical ability as thebook includes background information on statistics -including likelihood ratios - population genetics, andcourtroom issues.
The author, who is highly experienced in this field, hasillustrated the book throughout with his own experiences as well asproviding a theoretical underpinning to the subject. It is anideal choice for forensic scientists and lawyers, as well asstatisticians and population geneticists with an interest inforensic science and DNA.
