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?

Hard to believe, but the DNA stored in every single cell of human body is damaged thousands or even hundreds of thousands of times on a daily basis. Fortunately, the human body incorporates a repair mechanism that constantly targets and repairs damaged DNA. If this repair system fails however, then events such as cancer formation can occur.
