What Can Be Detected in a DNA Test?
One of the most common uses for DNA testing is to determine paternity or maternity. Through analyzing certain markers on the Y chromosome (for males) or mitochondrial DNA (for females), it's possible to accurately identify biological parents with 99% accuracy in some cases.
Additionally, if you're looking for more distant relatives such as grandparents or great-grandparents, autosomal tests are available that look at hundreds of thousands of markers across all chromosomes from both sides of your family tree—allowing you to trace back generations!
Other than determining parentage relationships, there are many other things that can be discovered through a standard DNA test: ethnic heritage/ancestry; carrier status for various genetic disorders; predisposition toward certain diseases; drug response profiles based on gene variations; and even physical characteristics like eye color!
By understanding your unique genomic makeup better through these results, individuals may have access to useful insights into their own health risks as well as those they pass down genetically—which could potentially lead them towards making healthier lifestyle choices in order prevent any long-term complications associated with their genes before they arise later on down the line!
