Find out the truth through DNA Paternity Testing : : Health ...

There have been many cases when DNA testing has been ordered to be performed by courts in order to settle the legal battle for divorce between wives and husbands. There have been instances when the father of the child wanted to make sure of his biological parentage before taking the responsibility of the child. To solve such disputes the court may permit a recognized organisation to conduct the DNA paternity test for determining the biological father of the child. Sometimes during an organ transplant operation, the DNA paternity test becomes significant [more...]

Not only can nanocytology help detect cancer early, it can shed light on the fact that these small changes in the cell structure are very telling. Changes in the DNA are also very revealing. For decades, scientists have known that smoking causes cancer because it damages the DNA. Now British researchers have uncovered the link between smoking and epigenetic changes in DNA. “Until now, however, there has been no direct evidence that smoking induces DNA methylation in humans,” Cancer Research UK Institute of Cancer Studies Dr Yuk Ting Ma said in a statement. “DNA methylation is a type of [more...]

For a court to accept DNA test results as evidence of paternity, it is essential that the court can be certain that the correct procedures have been followed, right from the taking of the samples to the reporting of the results.

ScienceInsider has some reactions to plans from the UK Border Agency to use DNA tests to verify claims of asylum seekers that they do in fact come from the countries they claim (e.g., Somalia), rather than other ones which do not face the same geopolitical turmoil. This is a real problem for European countries, as many illegal immigrants without documents claim to be from war-zones.

DNA, home testing and fuzzy human rights « UK Human Rights Blog

It is therefore not difficult to imagine the issue of DNA home-testing coming before the courts. If accuracy improves on testing for diseases, it might be argued that a home-test kit should be provided for free on the NHS, or even at schools as this falls under the state’s basic duty to protect life under Article 2 of the European Convention.

Ultrasensitive DNA detection

Rapid and sensitive DNA detection methods have a wide range of uses from cancer and disease diagnosis to the detection of harmful bacteria in food and drink. Previous methods rely on optical methods and a time consuming pre-amplification of the sample, which while sensitive often take several weeks and require bulky apparatus. Electrochemical methods have been used to improve the speed and portability. Now, Elena Ferapontova, Kurt Gothelf and colleagues at Aarhus University have developed a lipase-based electrochemical technique that can detect as little as 20 attomoles (2 x 10-17 moles) of [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...]

Do Not Overdo The Antibiotics

The quest for finding new antibiotics is still in place, sending lots of scientists out grubbing around in the dirt and performing highly technical DNA analyses on likely-looking bits of mud or mould. This is because bacteria have a tendency to develop a resistance to a certain antibiotic, which means that the doctor has to dish out a different antibiotic... but then the bacteria become resistant to that next antibiotic, and so forth. Are bacteria getting stronger and stronger via the process of antibiotic-stimulated natural selection? Is survival of the fittest working to breed new [more...]

What happens if a paternity test is denied? — Paternity Test UK

You can request a court ordered DNA paternity test. The court will order the mother to cooperate with the test and if she doesn’t she can be held in contempt of court. Again, this can vary from country to country and state to state. It is within the court’s discretion to look at the facts of the case and determine if a paternity test is necessary. Sometimes, issues such as hearsay evidence arise and you can be denied. If you have approached a court yourself in order to get a court order to prove paternity, and the order was denied there are several options still available, but many of [more...]
