ANSI-ASB Standard 018, Standard for Validation of Probabilistic Genotyping Systems, First Edition, 2020
This webinar is Part 4 of the four-part series Biology/DNA Standards and Best Practices Developed by OSAC & ASB. In this webinar, you will learn:
- How this document was conceived, written and developed into a published standard
- Key points covered by the standard
- How to implement ANSI/ASB Standard 018 in a forensic laboratory
Biology/DNA Standards and Best Practices Developed by OSAC & ASB Four-Part Webinar Series
This series of webinars is designed to educate the forensic and criminal justice community on new/emerging standards and best practice recommendations applicable to forensic biology and DNA testing laboratories. The series will provide detailed information regarding the development of the documents aimed at promoting best laboratory practices and high-quality testing. In addition, we will discuss new standards currently available in the field for use and implementation in crime laboratories around the world. Finally, we will cover standards and best practices currently under development, and how members of the community can participate in the development and promulgation of future documents.
Series Presenter Overview
Since their first meeting five years ago, the Biological Methods and the Biological Data Interpretation and Reporting Subcommittees of the Biology/DNA Scientific Area Committee (SAC) of the Organization of Scientific Area Committees (OSAC) for Forensic Science have been writing many standards and best practices documents relevant to forensic Biology and DNA testing laboratories. Upon completion of the initial OSAC drafting process, these documents then moved to the American Academy of Forensic Sciences (AAFS) Academy Standards Board (ASB), a standards development organization created in 2015 and accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).

USACIL DNA Technical Leader
Defense Forensic Science Center
Mr. Joel Sutton is the casework DNA Technical Leader for the United States Army Criminal Investigation Laboratory or USACIL, which is part of the Defense Forensic Science Center in Forest Park, GA. He earned a Bachelors of Science degree in Biology and a Master of Science in Forensic Sciences from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. His DNA casework experience covers over twenty years working for private, state, and federal laboratories utilizing a wide range of methods and technologies. The USACIL has validated and been using probabilistic genotyping software in its casework exclusively since 2014. He has been a member of SWGDAM since 2013, and served on the OSAC Biology DNA Interpretation and Reporting committee when the Standard for Validation of Probabilistic Genotyping Systems was first drafted.
