Y chromosome testing

A Y chromosome test (also referred to as a Y DNA test) is used to verify a biological relationship when a male’s alleged father is unavailable for a DNA paternity test. A son inherits his Y chromosome from his father, and the chromosome does not change from father to son.

Since the Y chromosome mutates once every 10,000 years, it is possible to analyze and compare test participants for biological relatedness through the paternal family line.

If the males in question are related, their Y chromosome will be identical.

Please note that this test cannot identify whether the test participants are father and son, grandfather or grandson, uncle or nephew, etc. It just demonstrates that the two males are paternally related.
