The DNA testing process
When both the alleged grandmother and grandfather are tested, our technicians will use the genetic coding to reconstruct the DNA of the alleged father.
Why is it helpful to also test the mother? This way, we can tell which part of the child’s DNA comes from the maternal side (since everyone’s DNA comes half from the mother and half from the father).
If only one grandparent and one child is available for testing, it’s not possible to come up with a complete assessment of the alleged father’s DNA. In these cases, we will compare the child’s genetics to the possible grandfather. We will examine things like the number of shared genes and certain patterns in the makeup. A statistical analysis will then give us the “grandparentage index.” If it’s less than 1.00, the chances that the two people are related are not likely. A result greater than 1.00 means that it’s likely they are related.
We can also perform the same type of tests on the alleged maternal grandparents in situations in which the mother and child were separated early in life and there is no possibility of a maternity test.
