DNA testing acquits an Innocent man from Rape conviction
Certain portions of DNA are unique to each individual. This genetic information cannot be purposely altered in any way. DNA profiling is a way of establishing identity and is used in a variety of ways, such as for determining twins to be identical or fraternal, and for many other family-relationship identifications. DNA samples can be obtained from blood, buccal swab, hair root, saliva, semen and much more. Because no two individuals (with the exception of identical twins) are composed of the exact same genetic profile, DNA testing is the absolute means to confirm any biological relationship [more...]

How familial DNA can help crime victims
Using a familial DNA search, the crime lab compared the DNA left at the crime scenes with DNA samples in California's database of 1.3 million felons to search for near matches indicating possible relatives. The familial DNA search turned up 200 partial matches. Researchers then compared the Y chromosome (which is passed from father to son) found at the crime scene to the 200 partial matches. Only one result turned up: Franklin Jr.'s son, who had been convicted of a felony weapons charge. The police subsequently surveilled Franklin Jr. and directly connected him to the serial killings using [more...]

For a child that has been delivered however, the test required just a swab from the cheeks of the child to get the DNA factors.
