DNA testing from home – does it work?

DNA testing at home

DNA is a fascinating entity! It is a marvelous chemical sequence that makes us who we are; every physical and mental characteristic you have is the result of DNA expression in the form of protein synthesis. Mutations in DNA can lead to several debilitating maladies, such as sickle cell disease, cystic fibrosis, and Tay-Sachs disease. In summary, the DNA is the genetic code that could tell you everything about anyone, hence the invention of DNA testing. In the beginning, this technique was solely performed by high-tech companies due to how complex the process was; however, nowadays, you can perform DNA testing from the comfort of your home. The entire process is super simple; all you have to do is collect a body sample from your blood, hair, or other tissue and send it back to the laboratory that offers this service. Once they complete analyzing your sample, you could log into the website and check the results. Note that all steps of this process are designed to guarantee full confidentiality to customers, so you don’t have to worry about that.

The reasons people seek this test are diverse and include:

    • Identifying the origin of their ancestors
    • Discovering any mutations that may cause diseases in the future (e.g. p53 gene mutation, BRCA mutation)
    • Looking for transmissible ailments
