Using a Sibling DNA Test to Prove Paternity

A sibling DNA test is often performed instead of a Paternity Test when the alleged father is deceased, unavailable or unwilling to take part but the child’s brother or sister is available. A paternity test would give more conclusive results but can only be carried out if we can obtain DNA samples from the alleged father. A Sibling Test is a good option to consider if you are unable to carry out a paternity test.

The Results of Your Sibling Test

A sibling DNA test is based on a very simple principle in genetics: heredity. All siblings will share common genetic markers with each other which they have inherited from their biological parents. If we analyse the samples of alleged siblings, we would expect to find these common maternal or paternal genetic markers.

Once DNA samples are at the laboratory, a DNA profile is generated for each of the individuals and a siblingship DNA index is determined. If the siblingship DNA index is less than 1.00, this would indicate that the siblings are unlikely to be related. If the siblingship DNA index is greater than 1.00, this indicates that the individuals tested are more likely to be true biological siblings. The higher the value of the siblingship DNA index, the greater the likelihood that the two individuals are true biological siblings. To analyse the possibility that the siblings share only one common parent versus two common parents (mother and father), a half siblingship DNA index is also obtained. The ratio of the half siblingship DNA index versus the full siblingship DNA index would provide you with an indication of whether the two individuals are more likely to share only one common parent (e.g. mother only) or two common parents (mother and alleged father).

Sibling DNA testing provides indications as to whether the individuals tested are full siblings, half siblings or not siblings at all. Including a sample from a known parent will help increase the accuracy of this test.

How Accurate is a Sibling DNA Test?

To increase the accuracy of a sibling DNA test and provide the most accurate result, we ask that samples of a known parent should be included when possible. If the child’s mother takes part in the test it enables the laboratory to identify the mother’s DNA inherited by the child and take it out of the equation, leaving only the DNA inherited from the father to be compared against the other test participant(s). There is no additional fee for including a known parent.

Sibling DNA Tests Involving Only Males

All males from the same paternal line will share the same Y chromosome which makes Y Chromosome Testing a very accurate and conclusive test. This test will accurately confirm if the male siblings tested share the same biological father. AffinityDNA offers Y chromosome testing for both legal and peace of mind purposes.

Sibling DNA Testing Using Mitochondrial DNA

Siblings who want to establish whether they share the same mother can do so by carrying out an X-SV test. This test is also known as a Mitochondrial DNA Test and will confirm with a Yes-or-No answer whether the tested parties share a common maternal line. With an X-SV test, both males and females can take part. X-SV maternal lineage testing can be carried out for legal or peace of mind purposes. Please Contact Us for more information.

Dog Allergy Test Kit Review
We had our dog allergy tested with you last year. We were advised that it is not a good enough test by our vet and many others online. This however couldn't be more wrong. We used the results to remove foods from her diet and even hypo-allergenic shampoos etc. Since she turned 1 years old we had her allergy tested by blood at the vet to see if she had out grown any of these allergies. The results were exactly the same as we were given by yourselves. Everything in red she is still allergic to. Without your help I'm not sure how we would of been able to help her in her first year. Especially given that she is allergic to almost everything hypoallergenic.

Dog Allergy Testing Review
Please forward my praise to your superiors with regards to your customer attention - thank you for all the communication at all times, and making sure all OK. Much appreciated. 1 day into eliminating salmon oil from her diet (daily supplement I was giving her for for her arthritis) and the turkey menus she is considerably better, all in 24 hrs. Can’t wait to see how she improves within a few weeks of elimination.
