Learn The Basic Process Of DNA Paternity Testing
However, how does DNA testing work? The DNA Paternity Test is conducted by taking DNA sample of the supposed father and the child. The child has a combination of the mother and father’s DNA that is a known fact. Thus, the child’s genome will contain almost equal parts of the mother and the father. The proof of paternity is obtained by comparing the DNA sequences of both the child and the supposed father. If their DNA results match, it means that the supposed father is indeed the child’s biological father. If it doesn’t, then it sets things clear and gives peace of mind to both [more...]

Pleiotropy: Some more junk DNA shown to have function
It shows a function for some "junk DNA" - DNA that does not serve any function for the developing organisms - namely in coding for micropeptides (very short proteins), which have now been shown to have a regulatory function in Drosophila. The first lines of the abstract readsA substantial proportion of eukaryotic transcripts are considered to be noncoding RNAs because they contain only short open reading frames (sORFs). Recent findings suggest, however, that some sORFs encode small bioactive peptides. Here, we show that peptides of 11 to 32 amino acids encoded by the polished rice (pri) sORF [more...]

DNA Testing Is A Slippery Slope For Casey Anthony Attorney's
I was shocked that the State of Florida had not already tested this bag and the contents inside for DNA, but apparently they have not. That said, I believe it is a huge mistake for Casey Anthony attorney's Jose Baez and Cheney Mason to focus attention on the science of DNA testing. DNA testing is a wonderful tool that has put many guilty people in prison and set free others who were not guilty. Since I believe Casey Anthony killed Caylee, for her attorney's to start desiring more DNA testing - they are placing on the public and legal record their trust and confidence in a science, which [more...]

A standard DNA outline consists of a series of peaks relating to the number of repeating stretches of DNA rest in certain genetic sequences, or alleles (see diagram). The repeats occur at specified locations on the chromosomes, called loci, and there are two alleles at one and the other locus- one inherited from each parent. [more...]

Even with the latest DNA sequencing technology, the researchers had to design a special strategy to search for the vanishingly rare mutations.

In other words, unless the SDIA test is specifically run, fragmentation issues will not be revealed. This type of case then may be labeled ‘idiopathic’ infertility.
