KinMixLite: Inference About Relationships from DNA Mixtures

Methods for inference about relationships between contributors to a DNA mixture and other individuals of known genotype: a basic example would be testing whether a contributor to a mixture is the father of a child of known genotype. This provides most of the functionality of the 'KinMix' package, but with some loss of efficiency and restriction on problem size, as the latter uses 'RHugin' as the Bayes net engine, while this package uses 'gRain'. The package implements the methods introduced in Green, P. J. and Mortera, J. (2017) <doi:10.1016/j.fsigen.2017.02.001> and Green, P. J. and Mortera, J. (2021) <doi:10.1111/rssc.12498>.
