Forensic DNA Testing

What is forensic DNA testing?

forensic-dna-testing-lab-ny-01Forensic DNA testing is the testing of DNA samples for the purpose of solving crimes. Many crime shows depict forensic DNA testing with the capturing of different samples, such as blood and hair, from a crime scene. Is this an accurate depiction? Well, these samples can be used for DNA testing, but this isn’t the whole story. Forensic DNA testing can actually be done with a variety of DNA samples, and it turns out that this type of DNA testing is extremely accurate. Courts of law and other legal entities trust the accuracy of forensic DNA testing to the point that they will convict someone of a crime based entirely on DNA evidence.

How does forensic DNA testing work?

Before we can test the DNA samples to solve a crime, we must obtain the DNA samples. DNA samples can come from a person’s hair, bodily fluids, skin cells, fingernails, toenails, and bones. It is surprising how many places one can find these samples. Such DNA samples can be found on clothing, sheets, towels, silverware, drinking glasses, used tissues, condoms, eye contacts, band-aids, cigarettes, gloves, tools, abandoned weapons, and more.

To collect the DNA samples, an investigator will go to the crime scene and gather these samples by taking the physical item with them in a sterile container, or by swabbing an item that may contain a person’s bodily fluid, such as a sample of blood or a sweaty door handle. The investigators will work carefully to ensure that their own DNA does not contaminate these valuable samples.

Once the DNA sample is collected, we must compare it to the DNA sample of a crime suspect. The DNA of both samples can be compared for relatedness in multiple ways:

1) Nuclear DNA Analysis

This method of DNA testing is called DNA Profiling or DNA Fingerprinting. With this method, we take the samples of DNA found in the nucleus of a cell from the suspect and the crime sample and compare them to each other. The genomes- all of a person’s DNA put together- are compared side by side. The more similar the samples, the more likely the suspect is the person who committed the crime.

2) Mitochondrial DNA Analysis

This method compares the DNA from the mitochondria of the suspect and the crime scene sample. Mitochondria are present in almost every cell in the body and help the cell produce energy to survive. We are able to use the DNA from this part of the cell for forensic investigations.

3) Y Chromosome DNA analysis

When the suspect is male, we are able to compare the Y chromosome of the suspect with that of the DNA from the crime scene. This method does not work with female suspects since females do not have a Y chromosome. 

Forensic DNA Testing Uses

dna-testing-police-courts-forensics-02DNA testing is not only use to convict criminals in court, but also to exonerate innocent suspects as well. Forensic DNA testing can also be used for forensic paternity cases in which paternity must be proven, either for missing person identification or for proving rape or incest cases when pregnancy results. Many alleged criminals have been freed from prison, and even death row, due to their proven innocence from Forensic DNA testing.

Family Tree DNA Testing

What is family tree DNA testing?

who-is-your-family-easy-dna-test-02Have you ever wondered if you’re actually related to someone who shares the same last name? Have you wondered where your ancestors probably lived and where they migrated to? Do you want to learn more information about that mystery part of your family tree? If so, family tree DNA testing can help you obtain this information.

We can perform family tree DNA testing in a variety of ways to help you learn more about yourself, your family, and where you came from.

 How does family tree DNA testing work?

Before we can test your DNA, we must obtain a DNA sample. We do this by collecting buccal cells, or cheek cells, from inside a person’s cheek using a cheek swab made of cotton. This is a painless, non-invasive method of gathering DNA samples. After we have your DNA sample, we will remove everything but the DNA itself.

family-tree-dna-testing-lab-01Each person has a unique set of DNA. All of a person’s DNA put together is called a genome. When people are related by ancestry, their genomes are more similar to each other than when they are not related. When we compare the genomes of multiple people, we are able to see how similar their genomes are, and thus understand more about the common ancestry of those people.

There are a few ways we can test your DNA to gather information about your genetic family tree:

1. Testing of your paternal line (Y-DNA testing)

Y-DNA testing is the testing of the Y chromosome in males to gather genetic information about that person’s paternal family line. Because females do not have a Y chromosome, they cannot take this test and will need to seek a different type of ethnic DNA testing. Y-DNA testing follows your direct paternal line and therefore allows you to gather historical and genetic information about people who share the same surname.

2. Testing of your maternal line (mtDNA testing)

The testing of your mitochondrial DNA is known as mtDNA testing. Mitochondria are the organelles inside your cells that provide the cells with energy. These organelles contain their own DNA, separate from the rest of the cell, and therefore we are able to test this DNA on its own. You inherit your mitochondrial DNA from your mother, so this DNA testing can provide information about your genetic maternal line. Both males and females inherit their mother’s mitochondrial DNA and therefore both genders are able to take this type of ethic DNA test.

3. Autosomal DNA testing

Autosomal DNA testing is the testing of all of your DNA besides your sex chromosomes. This can be done for both males and females and is usually the best option for ancestry DNA testing. With Y-DNA and mtDNA testing, you will receive information about your paternal and maternal lines, which can go very far back in history, but the rest of your family tree will be a mystery. With autosomal DNA testing, however, we can piece your complete family tree together to help you learn more about your family history.

If you are interested in any of these types of family tree DNA testing, contact us today to schedule a family tree DNA test appointment with the best AABB-accredited DNA testing lab in NYC.
