FINEX, FAMILIAS: two different approaches for the analysis of defective paternity cases
Journal article, 2004

We provide an overview of the main features of two computer programs enabling to calculate Bayesian probabilities in defective paternity cases: FINEX and FAMILIAS. These packages turn out very useful when computation complexities exceed the ordinary pencil-and-paper approach powers. FAMILIAS is especially suited for all cases in which there is a basic uncertainty on the most likely pedigree. FINEX is an Expert System-based program enabling to tackle very complex cases with plenty of data.
