Investigations in DNA test
Medicinos aprašymas. Investigations in DNA test.
DNA fingerprinting is a test to identify and evaluate the genetic information-called DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid)-in a person's cells. It is called a "fingerprint" because it is very unlikely that any 2 people would have exactly the same DNA information, in the same way that it is very unlikely that any 2 people would have exactly the same physical fingerprint. The test is used to determine whether a family relationship exists between two people, to identify organisms causing a disease, and to solve crimes.
