DNA Test - what is it and how the test is done

All human beings were born with a distinct identity. We all have different features from the other person; if anything, our differences make us stand out uniquely from the other people around us. However, certain identifying factors make us stand one as a family. One of these markers is DNA. It genetically identifies us as a part of our biological family because it closely matches our biological parents and siblings. Ancestry Reports DNA tests can be used to find out where our ancesterors might come from and etnicity. Genetics and Health Reports With a DNA test you can find out how your unique genetics and how it can impact the chances of developing certain health conditions. Paternity DNA Tests There are DNA paternity tests that exist to establish or identify the blood relations of a person. A DNA paternity test is usually ordered for legal reasons, mostly to identify the real father of a person. A DNA test is based on obtaining a blood sample or a cheek swab. Either of these samples is taken from the suspected son and the father and then sent to a lab. The lab works on finding identical genetic sequences in the DNA of both individuals. If a pattern is found, then the relationship is established. These tests are highly authentic and accurate, and there is usually no chance of errors in such tests.

These cheek cells are collected by rubbing a mouth swab on the inside of the person's cheeks to contain cells from inside the mouth, from which DNA is extracted, and gene sequences are matched.

A DNA Genealogy test is usually ordered to verify or test one's ancestral relationships. It is used to settle family disputes as to who owns the child. Talk to your doctor or legal firm to take a decision.

It simply matches the base sequences of parental DNA to conclude results.
