Here is some information on DNA tests; what information will you have? Sample DNA test results will give much information on the specific DNA test carried out. This may vary depending on if you have done a paternity test or another type of DNA test. There are many companies offering genetic testing in Ireland and results can vary in format and length from one company to the next. The type of test done (sibling DNA test or paternity test for example) will also have differing results.
The first thing you will see is the names of all the people who have taken part in the test and a declaration that DNA samples have not been verified (if it is an at home DNA test you have done). You can access sample DNA test results and view these in conjunction with the information provided.
The probability of paternity tells you the likelihood that the tested man is the biological father of the child; this will always be higher than 99.9%. If the tested father is not the biological father, the probability of paternity will be 0%. Further down you will have a table showing all the genetic loci tested. It is easy to understand: all genetic loci (expressed as numbers) on the table must be the same for both father and child; if loci are not the same, then this means the alleged father is not the real dad.
The sample DNA test results should give you a very good idea of what to expect; as mentioned however, there may be variations.
