Parentage Verification using DNA

Complexity of genetic material The body of an organism consists of a large number of cells, which contain a full and complete set of genetic material. Genetic information is present in the nucleus of a cell. The genetic information is stored in chromosomes, which are translated by the body in...

Parentage Verification using microsatellites (STRS)

https://combibreed.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/06/STR_yes.pnghttps://combibreed.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/06/STR_no.png The genetic variation which is present in an animal, originates from both parents. Half of the variation is originating from the father, whereas the other half comes from the mother. For parentage verification, typically 20 up to 40 genetic characteristics are visualized. In this process the length of genetic...

Parentage Verification using single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPS)

As with STRs, the basis is the same. However, more genetic markers are tested because the information content per markers is lower for SNPs. The genetic variation which is present in an animal, originates from both parents. Half of the variation is originating from the father, whereas the other half...
