DNA Facts - Did you know?
DNA was eventually discovered by Friedrich Miescher in 1869. At that time however, scientists hadn't realized DNA held the genetic code to life until 1943. Up until then, the general belief was that proteins were responsible for holding genetic information.
Facts About Parental Testing
Parental testing can be performed easily through established companies in the United States with AABB accreditation. The testing is usually performed by collecting Buccal cells found on the inside of a person's cheek using a Buccal swab or cheek swab. These swabs have wooden or plastic stick handles with a cotton on synthetic tip. The collector rubs the inside of a person's cheek in order to collect as many Buccal cells as possible. The Buccal cells are then sent to a laboratory for testing. For paternity testing, samples from the alleged father and child would be needed. For maternity testing, samples from the alleged mother and child would be needed.
