Avuncular Informational

DNA testing can be used to determine if there is a biological relationship between two individuals. This is typically done by obtaining genetic material (DNA samples) from the two individuals via cheek swabs, then comparing these samples. 

The Avuncular DNA Test can be used to determine if two individuals are related to each other as aunt–nephew (or niece) or as uncle–nephew (or niece).

This test compares the DNA from a child to the DNA of their biological mother, as well as the DNA from one full sibling of the child’s alleged father. This is an indirect test to determine a biological relationship; this type of testing can be useful when an alleged father is unable or unwilling to participate in a paternity test.
