    ..A better diagnostic is the average LR for Hd true which should be near to 1. We test the performance of a continuous interpretation model on nine DNA profiles of varying quality and complexity and verify the theoretical expectations. ..

    ..There is no level at which we can say that height information is totally uninformative. Even at the lowest levels the bulk of the data show some improvement from the inclusion of peak height information. ..
