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. Through genetic data bases one can trace lost relatives or find ancestors. Since the Y chromosome tends to remain unchanged for generations people can use DNA testing to establish ancestral lines. 4. Prenatal genetic tests help doctors determine whether or not the unborn fetus will have certain incurable health problems. 5. DNA tests are also used to help solve murders and other crimes. Often elusive criminals leave a DNA imprint at the scene of crime and testing helps catch them. In recent years many unsolved mysteries have been solved due to new ways of analysis. AdChoices 6. DNA testing finds great use in the health field as DNA sometimes is the cause of rare medical conditions or heritable diseases. 7.

DNA tests on new species or on material from outer space help scientists and researchers determine the origins of a species and where they stand with reference to known living forms. As advancements in DNA research have occurred, DNA testing gets more and more advanced to include: genetic fingerprinting, pupil recognition, creation of records of pure breeds, and more. DNA tests are today affordable and cost between USD 100-400 a test. And the conveniences are numerous; a DNA test kit can be ordered through mail order or using the internet. ]
