DNA parentage testing when the alleged parent is deceased – DNA Tests

These types of samples will require mtDNA testing techniques, as opposed to standard STR DNA, but can be useful in determining parentage. Since, often times, success can not be guaranteed with samples of the deceased, it is recommended that one consult with a DNA testing laboratory or expert to be advised of the best option for your specific situation. In some cases, it may be helpful to rely on samples from the alleged parent’s family members, which can sometimes indirectly establish parentage.

PLoS ONE: Analysis of Short Tandem Repeats by Parallel DNA Threading

Abstract TopThe majority of studies employing short tandem repeats (STRs) require investigation of several of these genetic markers. As such, we demonstrate the feasibility of the trinucleotide threading (TnT) approach for scalable analysis of STRs. The TnT method represents a parallel amplification alternative that addresses the obstacles associated with multiplex PCR. In this study, analysis of the STR fragments was performed with capillary gel electrophoresis; however, it should be possible to combine our approach with the massive 454 sequencing platform to considerably increase the [more...]

Metropolis Healthcare, the only private lab in the city so far to provide DNA paternity tests, has been getting eight to 10 cases a month. “Infidelity is one of the main reasons behind men asking for this test,’’ said Dr Nisha Ahmad, of Metropolis Labs. “Abroad though, the primary reason is a possible mixing up of babies.’’ She said there are a lot of inquiries about the tests. “Many who approach us for the test are not from the city,’’ she said. Experts also attribute the rise in paternity tests to more couples seeking the help of assisted reproductive methods. Clinics [more...]

Darwin's God: For What Profit?

But paternity testing and DNA fingerprinting are completely unrelated to the pseudogene example presented by evolutionist Ken Miller at the Kitzmiller trial. This comparison of forensic tests with evolutionary homologies is another common evolutionary canard that evolutionists use to mislead those not familiar with molecular biology. Forensic tests are performed where genealogical relationships are known to exist because they are empirically observed. There’s no question that people have children, and those children’s DNA sequences derive from their parents, grandparents, and so forth. [more...]

Rogers concluded that, in the absence of an identical twin, the blood samples came from Bourque and the chance the sample came from another Caucasian person, unrelated to the victim, is astromical.
