Why Home DNA Test Kits Are Growing in Popularity

DNA testing is a forensic means of testing biological material in order to establish a person's genetic identity, their relationship with other individuals, and their genealogy. DNA testing is commonly used to establish a child's paternity, as well as to determine whether two people are related to each other. DNA testing used to be time consuming and expensive in the early days of the technology, but advances in science and medicine have ensured that DNA testing is now a routine procedure and can be conducted in labs or even the comfort of your own home. Read on to learn why more people are using a home DNA test kit.

The acronym DNA stands for Deoxyribose Nucleic Acid. The structure of Deoxyribose Nucleic Acid was discovered by the biologists James Watson and Francis Crick in 1953, and they were awarded the Nobel prize for medicine for their work. Their research did not attract much attention for some time, but has now become the basis for many of the greatest achievements in medicine as well as the foundation on which countless court verdicts are delivered.

Home tests are a simple, painless and accurate method of testing for DNA. Home testing kits consist of a simple cheek swab that the recipient must scrape the inside of their cheek with, and then place in a holding container that will preserve the material until it is tested. The container is then delivered to the testing laboratory either by courier or ordinary mail. Home test kits are becoming increasingly popular due to their convenience and unobtrusive nature. Many companies offer home test kits that are fully admissible in courts.

There are several reasons why people need home tests. Firstly, if the parents are unsure about the paternity of the child, the primary means of resolving the doubt is the DNA test. Testing can even be performed while the mother is pregnant, although there are some chances of complications. The best recourse is to perform the test after the child is born. If the child is already born, a single lock of hair from the child and from the father is more than sufficient for a full, reliable test.

Secondly, DNA tests are often performed by possible siblings who are not sure about their parentage or whether they are related. This can be done if one of the siblings is in need of a medical transfusion or an organ transplant, which usually requires the donor and the recipient to be genetically closely related.
Finally, people use home test kits to establish their long term genetic lineage. An example of this is the famous Genographic project, which is run by the National Geographic foundation. This project enables you to order a home test kit, in order to reveal your deep ancestry. It shows your ancestors' migration patterns over thousands of years and also shows the route they traveled during those migrations.

If you are planning to order a home DNA test kit for legal purposes such as a paternity test, you will need to ensure that the test is admissible in court. Some testing companies are not recognized by federal courts and using their tests can cause legal complications or get your case thrown out of court. As always, it is best to seek qualified legal advice before having a DNA test done for paternity or other legal purposes.
