Y- CHROMOSOME TEST: Male Lineage Testing

Male Lineage Testing

We offer Male Lineage Testing in Nigeria at Lynx DNA Laboratories with DNA Test Centres spread across Lagos, Calabar, Benin, Port Harcourt, Aba among other states.

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.
