Male Lineage Testing can indirectly tell you whether or not a child is related to the alleged father’s brother(s) and other male relatives who share a common ‘paternal’ line. It is often more useful in disproving a relationship.
What is Male Lineage Test?
Avuncular DNA test determines if a person is biologically related to a sibling of the father in dispute. This is a good option when the father is not available for testing, and the only relative available is a single sibling (brother or sister) of the father.
When Can Male Lineage Test Be Done?
Avuncular DNA testing examines specific genetic markers that relate to the aunt-uncle relationship. It analyzes the genetic markers to determine the statistical probability that an individual is the biological aunt or uncle of a child or adult.
Avuncular DNA test can work by testing samples from uncle or aunty. But, it is more accurate if the mother’s DNA sample is also tested.
