Correction: SWGDAM Recommendations to the FBI Director on the "Interim Plan for the Release of Information in the Event of a 'Partial Match' at NDIS"

Scientific Working Group on DNA Analysis Methods Ad Hoc Committee on Partial Matches

The October 2009 issue of Forensic Science Communications included SWGDAM Recommendations to the FBI Director on the "Interim Plan for the Release of Information in the Event of a 'Partial Match' at NDIS." Unfortunately, the document contained errors.

In the first paragraph of the Introduction, the letter m was omitted from the word moderate.

In the Appendix, the word Estimated should read Expected in two places: the last sentence of the fourth paragraph and the first sentence below Table 1. Both phrases should read Expected Kinship Ratio, not Estimated Kinship Ratio

These errors have been corrected in the original document, which is located here. The Editors apologize for the errors.
