Abstract

The use of DNA profiles in forensic identification problems are common procedure nowadays. It was in England, in 1995, where the first DNA profiles database was built. It gave rise to new challenges concerning the forensic identification. Here it is intended to exemplify how to use the analysis of DNA profiles to solve the problem of simple maternity search. For this aim it is necessary to make use of a probabilistic expert system (PES), in this case an object-oriented Bayesian network (OOBN).

Keywords

DNA profiles, Bayesian networks, maternity search.
