Submission + - Court releases source code for DNA comparison software

Albanach writes: New York City’s crime lab used genotyping software called the Forensic Statistical Tool (FST) to compare DNA samples. The American Bar Association reports that the software source code was found to be potentially relevant at trial and, following motions by ProPublica, the code has been released and is available on GitHub. While FST is no longer in use in New York City, the software was used in about 1,350 cases over about 5½ years.
