Jonathan Adelman (Inventor), Michael Marciano (Inventor)

Research output: Patent


A system configured to characterize a number of contributors to a DNA mixture within a sample, the system comprising: a sample preparation module configured to generate initial data about the DNA mixture within the sample; a processor comprising a number of contributors determination module comprising a machine-learning algorithm configured to: (i) receive the generated initial data; (ii) analyze the generated initial data to determine the number of contributors to the DNA mixture within the sample; and an output device configured to receive the determined number of contributors from the processor, and further configured output information about the received determined number of contributors.
