US Y-STR Database

Release: 4.2 | Last Updated: 02/18/2017

Mixture Analysis Tools

The Mixture Analysis Tools are provided as a service to the forensic community. NCFS has not performed extensive validation of these tools and therefore the presence of a tool does not necessarily imply the endorsement of the method by NCFS. The software tools compute the possible haplotype contributors to a forensic casework Y-STR mixture and provide a count of how many times these haplotypes are found in the Database.

Prior to use in any criminal and/or civil case matter, users will need to conduct their own validation of the software and/or independently confirm the results on a case-by-case basis. Instructions for use are included in each program. Click the links below to open the desired program and enable macros.
