Table 3 Probability of identity for the validated fingerprinting assay

From: Development of a fingerprinting panel using medically relevant polymorphisms

Polymorphism group Total number of Polymorphisms Probability of identity P(ID) Probability of identity (siblings) Psib(ID)
Validated fingerprinting assay 37 6.132 × 10-15 3.077 × 10-08
Conservative validated fingerprinting assay* 32 4.906 × 10-13 2.947 × 10-07
Polymorphisms on the Illumina platform (550K) 16 5.844 × 10-07 4.075 × 10-04
Polymorphisms on the Affymetrix platform (6.0 chip) 12 2.649 × 10-05 3.004 × 10-03
  1. * The conservative estimate includes only polymorphisms that are greater than 50 centimorgans (cM) apart to ensure independent assortment of each polymorphism.
