How to choose a DNA Paternity testing service in UK : : Healthcare ...

Most of the highly reputed DNA paternity testing centres and laboratories will claim a 99.99% accuracy of proof of paternity when the father, child and the mother are all tested. The results will be treated as 100% proof if the man who has been tested is not the father. Accreditation from the competent authority In the UK, the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) is the competent authority to give a formal certificate of recognition to a body or organisation or person to carry out the testing. The Ministry maintains a list of all those companies and organisations which have been accredited to perform [more...]

UK Border Agency Nationality Testing by DNA Flawed?

Alec Jeffreys, University of Leicester states the following, “Nationality is not genetic, and by the UK Border Agency’s logic, huge numbers of people in the US and UK would fail a DNA-based nationality test (there is no defined US ethnic population unless you use indigenous North Americans in which case virtually everyone fails, and much the same is true for the UK). ” Following are links to several blogs at Science Insider that might be of interest.

Dienekes' Anthropology Blog: DNA tests for asylum seekers

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. I am completely in agreement with the use of DNA tests to substantiate asylum seekers' claims, with the caveat that the followed protocols should be transparent to the scientific community, so that they can be [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...]

A new portable DNA analyzer performs real-time analysis of blood samples left at the scene of a crime. Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, developed the device, which packs microfluidics, electronics, optics, and chemical detection technology into a single briefcase-sized unit. "While previous groups have developed lab-on-a-chip systems, none of them have succeeded in making a completely portable, robust system that can be used at a scene," says team leader Richard Mathies.

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. From an Article 8 perspective, if, contrary to the HGC recommendations, parents start to test their children’s DNA when there is no specific clinical need, rights groups may seek to judicially review the currently laissez-faire regulation of the [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...]

DNA Testing – Making the Right Choice

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.

National DNA database and psychiatric patients | Frontier Psychiatrist

The advent of DNA analysis as a powerful tool for crime detection has led to the creation of England and Wales’s National DNA Database (NDNAD). This is one of the world’s largest databases of DNA information, storing profiles of nearly five million individuals (1). We write to raise a concern about the potential impact of this database on people with mental disorders. The NDNAD has long been the subject of scrutiny and criticism with regards to how DNA profiles are collected and retained and from whom.
