    Abstract

    The identification of large numbers of genetic variants for antigens, enzymes, and other proteins, combined with knowledge of their frequencies of occurrence in the population, enhances the ability to detect the individuality of a given blood specimen. Furthermore, the greater the number of variant protein systems considered, the greater is the likelihood of discriminating between individuals. As new techniques become available, forensic scientists will have increasing need for statistical data to use in attempting to establish the individuality of a blood specimen.
