Specifications include, but are not limited to: Procure DNA Mixture Interpretation software and
application, together with implementation, training, maintenance and support services for the
Honolulu Police Department. The goal of this procurement is to improve the capabilities of the Forensic Biology Unit. Manual
mixture interpretation can be a laborious and time consuming process. The field of forensic
DNA testing in the United States is moving beyond the traditional manual binary approach in
interpreting DNA mixtures to using computer software programs specifically designed to assist
in the interpretation process. Interpreting DNA mixtures that were deemed too complex to
manually interpret are now possible with the aid of mixture interpretation software.
