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 person’s 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 mother’s and father’s 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?
Except for red blood cells, each cell in our body contains about 2 metres of DNA. Humans all have have approximately 100 trillion cells. Each DNA strand is tightly spiraled into 46 chromosomes. These chromosomes are arranged in coupled pairs. One side of the pair is inherited from our Mother and the other inherited from our Father.
