Paternity Dna Test Officially Required By The Court For Child Custody
CT required paternity tests or DNA testing could be emotionally draining on all parties concerned in disputes over paternity. This really is especially true when the dispute deals with the concern of little one custody. If either parent questions the paternity from the little one, a court has the alternative to order a paternity test to resolve this. Both the father or the mother can request a court required paternity test. A great deal of instances the mother will request a paternity test to ensure that she can achieve the fiscal support that she needs to raise the little one. A father might [more...]

Science News for Kids: Feature: Scientist Profile: Wally Gilbert
You've won a Lasker Award and a Nobel Prize for your research on sequencing DNA, basically figuring out the order of the letters in this very long word. How does that method work? Fred Sanger in England invented one method, and I invented another with my collaborator, Allan Maxam. The very first piece of DNA we deciphered was only 20 groups long. It took us two years to work out the order of those groups. A typical gene in our body is some ten thousand groups long, so you couldn't possibly work out the entire order of groups for a gene. Then suddenly we discovered a simple way of doing it. It [more...]

How the Most Influential Scientists Alive Today Unraveled the ...
DNA has been extensively researched by scientists wishing to further understand the complex way in which life is biochemically formed. DNA contains the genetic information that composes nearly all living organisms. In the early 1950s, molecular biologist James D. Watson led his team of researchers to the ground breaking discovery that DNA is a double-stranded chain, also referred to as a double helix. Using models, he showed how matching nucleotide base pairs from the two DNA strands interlocked to form a double helix. He then showed how the strands separate during replication, and how each [more...]

Chimp vs Human DNA- The “Ninety-Eight Percent” Myth
As we enter the month of August, it’s time once again for students to head back to school. That being the case, there’s a good chance that in science classes all across the country, as teachers cover the topic of evolution, sooner or later they will make mention of the “98 percent similarity” between human DNA and chimpanzee DNA, thus implying common ancestry. Over the past several years, this idea of 98 percent similarity has been repeated so many times that it is now widely accepted by most people as a “scientific fact.” But is that really the case?
