User: DNA uses

Weegy: DNA or genetic testing has many uses: 1. In archeology DNA tests help record genetic codes and sequences of life on earth many centuries ago. This creates a data base that can be used as a ready reference. 2. [ Genetic testing is used to determine the paternity of a child . This helps authorities solve legal problems and settle any tussles. 3. DNA testing can be used to create a family tree or genealogical chart.
