In episode six of our 2018 NIJ R&D Season, Just Science speaks with Dr. Michael Edge of UC Davis about his research with record linkage of CODIS profiles with SNP genotypes.
Can you tell if a set of CODIS markers and a set of SNP genotypes match the same person? Just science discusses with Doc the possibilities of linkages between CODIS and SNPs databases for identity and familial matching, and dispel preconceptions associated with them.
This episode of Just Science is funded by the National Institute of Justice’s Forensic Technology Center of Excellence [Award 2016-MU-BX-K110].
Dr. Michael “Doc” Edge is a postdoctoral researcher at UC Davis, where he studies population genetics and quantitative genetics. He is the first author of a recent study on LD-based genetic record linkage (Edge et al., 2017, PNAS), which he conducted while completing a Ph.D. with Noah Rosenberg at Stanford University.
