Discussion

The release of database sample information in Standard 11.1.1(CO) is specifically limited to database applications and does not apply to forensic (anonymous) population databases that are used by caseworking laboratories to estimate allele frequency information.

Laboratory case records may be in hard copy, electronic files, or a combination of both formats.

Materials contained in case records must demonstrate compliance with this standard.
