What is DNA Genetic Testing?

DNA basically tells us about the track record of person’s ancestry and gives parental knowledge.  Similarly, DNA genetic testing is a DNA based test which gives the family history by looking at person’s genome resulting in the detailed analysis of ethnic and genealogical information related to an individual or the family as a whole.

This newly developed technique of DNA testing has given the way to people who are interested to know about their historical background. As result of DNA testing of every person is different from another person’s DNA because of the genetic variations. So an examination of DNA will give the information about the ancestor’s location, their ethnicity, and their historical plus residence background as well. DNA genetic testing would be useful for those seeking to find their parental history and those who are pursuing forensic analysis.

Genes of a person depend upon the certain pattern of chromosomes closely and directly related to their parents. In scientific terms, there are two types of chromosomes that are X chromosomes in females and Y chromosomes in males. All the genetic DNA testing is particularly dependant on the pattern of these chromates.

Most common three types DNA genetic testing are given below:

Testing of Y Chromosomes:

As Y chromosome is for male and it goes directly from father to son so this DNA testing will be done in males rather than in females. Y chromosome testing is usually done to check out that how two families having same surnames are related to each other.

Testing of mitochondrial:

As all the chromosomes are present in the nucleus of the cell thus, each cell structure has different mitochondria also known as mitochondrial DNA. This is passed from the mother to her children directly so this test can be taken by both male and females. Mitochondria test are used to identify the genetic variations related to the female member if in case, the details have been lost.

Testing of single nuclei polymorphism:

Nuclei polymorphism testing gives detailed information about so many factors related to the genetic variations. This testing is done on national and international level giving the knowledge about all the historical ancestors including Europeans, Asians, Africans, Arabs and many other ethnic groups.

What Will be the Advantage of DNA Genetic Testing?

DNA testing will be beneficial for you in not only giving the detailed analysis of background knowledge but also it tells us the medical effects we have on our body.
