Used by the FBI among others, STRmix™ is helping to crack many crimes that were previously thought to be too complex to solve using DNA evidence. The sophisticated forensic software has been used successfully in numerous U.S. court cases, including 28 successful admissibility hearings.
Internationally, STRmix™ has been used to interpret DNA evidence in more than 100,000 cases since 2012. ESR scientists, John Buckleton and Jo-anne Bright together with Duncan Taylor from Forensic Science South Australia developed STRmix™ in 2009. Kathryn Ryan talks to Jo-anne Bright about the impressive results.
