Genetic-testing services offer 'misleading' results | California Watch
Flickr photo by Horia Varlan Genetic-testing services that can be administered at home and sent off to a lab misinformed their customers, promising "DNA-based disease predictions" and more, according a government employee's testimony to a Congressional subcommittee Thursday. The testing services – three of which have California offices – were found giving "test results that are misleading and of little or no practical use" to fictitious profiles that the U.S. government accountability office created, Gregory Kutz of the GAO testified Thursday. The GAO purchased 10 tests from four [more...]

Africa Rising 2010: Three Paths to Dual Citizenship
members of the African Diaspora can now pursue citizenship in countries in which those from their ethnic group now reside. The test, which draws on DNA data from throughout Africa, shows you where the specific branch of your ethnic group resides today. It will not tell you where they were when your ancestors were stolen away, but then the borders established by the colonial powers were and are artificial and do not reflect the normal migration patterns that have held for millennia. We believe this DNA testing can be further certified by African scientists if necessary so that African [more...]

African Cyberpunk, DNA Hacking, and the Problems of Transnational Regulation There’s a post that’s been making the rounds in the science fiction blogosphere that warrants note by those interested in international law, especially in regards to issues of international trade, development, and regulation.

DNA findings point to royal roots in African nations
Holland attributes his success to GeneTree, a Utah-based DNA testing service that came up with the Cameroon connection. But GeneTree's chief scientific officer, geneticist Scott Woodward, said Williams' case was far from unusual. "This isn't our home run," Woodward told me. "It takes a lot of regular work. But what did do was give us some nice clues and hints about where he should concentrate his efforts. Should he be looking in Cameroon, or should he be looking in Nigeria? That makes a big difference." In fact, previous genetic tests had indeed suggested that Holland's [more...]

Womanist Musings: Lost Ancestry: I am a descendant of slaves
Ancestry.ca was built to trace White families I will admit that because my family is Caribbean of descent, our records would certainly be harder to trace, but even if we had been in Canada for generations, tracing them would still be difficult. This site was built to trace White ancestry confirming once again that white bodies matter. I cannot even recall seeing a single person of colour in any of the advertisement for this business. I think I am especially irked every time they point out that someone found a military relative. It smacks of suggesting that people of colour have [more...]

A 54-year old man in France arrested for making false paternity declarations for 55 babies from African women has agreed to DNA paternity testing to substantiate his claim that he is in fact their father. The Daily Mail reports that the unnamed man, of Senegalese background, is accused of actively participating in a scheme to allow African women to immigrate to France with full benefits due to his paternity. Official investigators believe that due to the scale of the scheme – where 55 women and their children were registered at the man’s two bedroom flat in Paris – his claims of [more...]

Wildlife forensic scientists were able to analyse fragments of the horn and they were not only able to use the DNA from the horn to identify which species of animal the horn belonged to but also the individual zoo animal from which the horn had been taken. This helped investigators to solve the mystery the horn’s origin. The horn came from a white rhino like this one. A white rhino's front horn can grow to be over a metre in length.
