dataL gives the likelihood of a set of alleles observed at a specific locus conditional
on the number of contributors that gave these alleles. Calculation is based upon the frequencies
of the observed alleles.
dataL(x = 1, p, theta = 0)
an integer giving the number of contributors
a numeric vector giving the frequencies of the observed alleles in the mixture
a float in [0,1[.
dataL function has several similarities with the
of the forensic package which computes the probability of the DNA evidence,
implements a particular case of this probability. Please see http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/forensic/
