Should DNA probabilistic genotyping be used against defendants?

When a crime scene sample has evidence of more than one individual crime labs attempt to assign the results to particular individuals.  When there are DNA alleles from only two people the process is usually straightforward -- there is a "major contributor" and "minor contributor" identified.  The problem becomes more complicated if there is evidence of DNA from three or more persons in the mixture.  Until recently, many labs reported results as "inconclusive" because separating the mixture of DNA was too subjective.  Then several software companies developed algorithms that could assign the DNA profiles to particular individuals by using statistical probabilities.  This method of "probablistic genotyping" has been controversial among scientists in the field and forced courts to confront much new evidence.
