Many crime cases require clarifi cation whether or not a trace was left by a suspect. This is achieved by comparing their DNA profi les, a match indicating identity of suspect and donor. In sexual crimes, the trace is often a mixture of male and female material. This renders the analysis of the Y chromosome useful, but the interpretation of the genetic results is complicated by the specifi c mode of inheritance. We review some of the arising challenges as well as recently suggested solutions.
