The first is from the FSC putting demands on the American Society of Crime Lab Directors regarding their customer crime labs following proper standards for stats handling DNA samples from multiple sources (mixtures).
The second is from the ASCLD asking some questions about verification vs validation and raising the use of non-suspect relative databases ( private DNA companies like Ancestry.com giving the police access to their genealogy DNA). The FSC deferred that subject to further discussion within the entire forensic community rather than just the State of Texas. I wonder why the ASCLD asked about private databases? Almost all of its membership are ex crime lab directors and forensic science bureaucrats and have ties with law enforcement. Maybe it is probing to see if they have more challenges coming in their direction? The latest forensic news has these databases possessing their own issue problems.
The FSC answers to the ASCLD are included in the pdf below. The FSC re confirmed what they are concerned about (accuracy and reliable methods) which is contained in this image. The bold text is from the ASCLD.
