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...]

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...]

The Spittoon » My $0.02 about The $1000 Genome

Although Davies generally appears to be a proponent of consumer genomics, he also provides examples of the possible risks of widespread DNA testing in addition to the benefits. While reading this book, I found strong parallels between Davies’ general themes and 23andMe’s overall philosophy. Both Davies and 23andMe stress the importance of “empowering the individual” and “democratizing genetics”.  Direct-to-consumer genetic testing puts the power of knowledge into the hands of the individual, in contrast to what is often deemed the paternalistic nature of the medical [more...]

Choosing An Online Dating Service | iTaste

Some sites are more scientific than others and even attempt to match people up by using DNA sequencing technology that is based on specific genetic traits. Other sites offer personality tests to find out which people might be compatible with each other. Some of the services even guarantee you’ll meet a partner or you don’t have to pay for the membership. One of the main things to look for in a site is the number of members that belong to it. Finding somebody to date will be pretty hard if there are only a couple hundred people on the site. The area they live in is also an important [more...]

Fastest Evolving Technology – DNA Sequencing | Impact Lab

Human DNA sequence Investing in technology-driven fields is risky, especially when everyone touts them as the Next Big Thing. Sure, it’s easy to see quick gains, but you’re just as likely to see those gains vanish as the next-generation technology sneaks in and replaces it — the disruptor becomes the disrupted, so to speak. Perhaps the fastest evolving technology right now isn’t computer tech, but rather is found in DNA sequencing. We’ve gone from sequencing the first genome for about $2.7 billion in the Human Genome Project just a few years ago and rather quickly come down to [more...]
