    Facts About Paternity Testing

    Paternity testing can determine whether or not a particular man is the biological father of a child. This procedure involves collecting and examining the DNA of a small sample of bodily fluid or tissue from a child and the potential father. DNA is the unique genetic "fingerprint" that makes up a persons genes and chromosomes. When a baby is conceived, each parent passes on half of his/her DNA to the baby, whose genetic code (DNA) is a shared mix of only its mothers and fathers DNA. By collecting and examining a small sample of DNA from the baby and the potential father, a paternity test can confirm or disprove that the potential father is indeed the biological father of the baby.

    DNA Facts - Did you know?

    DNA has a half-life of 521 years. In simple terms this means that DNA extracted from animals or organisms older than 2 million years could not be used to bring that species back to life. As such the concept of recreating dinosaurs is not feasible because their extinction happened 65 million years ago.
