DNA fingerprinting, help explain the idea and logic

“DNA fingerprinting” is a recently-introduced biochemical procedure that uses a pattern derived from a person’s genetic material to match a suspect’s genetic material against that of a specimen from a crime scene. Proponents have claimed astronomically high odds against obtaining a match by chance alone. These odds are based on an assumption that there is independence between the different characteristics represented by a single pattern. Which one of the following, if true, casts the most doubt on the claim of the proponents of DNA fingerprinting? (A) The large amount of genetic [more...]

Information About Non Paternity And Non Maternity

All the same, requirements for consent and counselling for DNA testing are unique from each country's laws and policies. DNA testing would be the most state-of-the-art and precise technique to figure out both non-paternity and non-maternity. In figuring out if the presumed parents are genuine biological ones or in determining actual biological mother or father-child bond, subjects undergo parental screening. This sort of practice uses the genetic fingerprinting (or DNA profiling), that is a approach to recognize identity by means of DNA profiles. A paternity test serves as an inherited proof [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...]

That is why many judges will both allow DNA fingerprinting to be admissible as evidence with its one-in-a-billion error and reject polygraph exam results. Even if a flawless test could be created, the use of a brain wave test on interrogation targets is also wrong and should not be done. In the Wired article, Rosenfeld wrote that he wants to see his technology applied to terrorist interrogation, saying a hypothetical terrorist suspect could either be sent to Egypt for the water board or be given a scientifically based test. Unfortunately, the use of brain wave technology to detect deception [more...]

As with normal fingerprints, governments around the world have built a database of DNA fingerprints since the late 1980s. DNA often is found on the crime scene in the form of bodily fluids, such as blood. Using these samples, DNA can be compared in a laboratory using gel electrophoresis, which uses a magnetic field to separate the strands of DNA. Unfortunately, especially in the early history of DNA fingerprinting, mistakes were often made. It is estimated that one tenth of a percent of DNA comparisons are incorrectly done. This may not seem like a lot, but considering that there are more [more...]

In contrast to this technology, the DNA paternity test is done to confirm the father of a child.

The advancement in the field of medical science has achieved such heights it is almost impossible to believe. With the introduction of DNA paternity test, gone are the days when in order to know the paternity, the face of the child were closely compared with the potential father.

How Fingerprinting Helps In DNA Paternity Testing

This form of fingerprinting method is also known as DNA profiling. Using this technique, the individuals are identified on the basis of their unique DNA profiles. This DNA profiling is done by analyzing the VNTR sequences. It stands for variable number tandem repeats. This sequence is found to be different in individuals except in twins. As per the facts mentioned above, the DNA samples of the child will exhibit the similar VNTR loci as that of their parents. This fingerprinting helps in identifying that whether the known father of a child is genuinely his biological dad. In fact, it is [more...]
