NIST interlaboratory studies involving DNA mixtures (MIX13): A modern analysis


MIX13 was an interlaboratory exercise directed by NIST in 2013. The goal of the exercise was to evaluate the general state of interpretation methods in use at the time across the forensic community within the US and Canada and to measure the consistency in mixture interpretation. The findings were that there was a large variation in analysts’ interpretations between and within laboratories.
