The function 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.
1  dataL(x = 1, p, theta = 0)

x 
an integer giving the number of contributors 
p 
a numeric vector giving the frequencies of the observed alleles in the mixture 
theta 
a float in [0,1[. 
dataL
function has several similarities with the Pevid.gen
function
of the forensic package which computes the probability of the DNA evidence, dataL
implements a particular case of this probability. Please see http://cran.rproject.org/web/packages/forensic/
