Understanding DNA test results for aunt

How accurate is a DNA test for aunt and niece?

Aunt & Uncle Testing Options

The Aunt or Uncle DNA Testing kit can determine with 100% accuracy, up to a 99.99% positive proof of relationship or 100% exclusion. Conclusive Range: <10% exclusion or >90% inclusion. Participants: One alleged aunt or uncle, one niece or nephew.

How do I read my DNA test results?

The DNA test report you will receive shows numbers (in the first column) that indicate each of the 21 loci involved in the DNA testing process. The columns marked “allele” on the DNA test report contain numbers indicating the two alleles found at each locus (or one number if they are the same size).

Do I have my aunts DNA?

ALL of the DNA that your aunt or uncle carries is your ancestors’ DNA too – even though you only match your aunt/uncle on 25% of their DNA. ALL OF THEIR DNA IS AS RELEVANT TO YOU AS YOUR OWN!

What does 99.99 mean on a DNA test?

When we say the probability of paternity is 99.99% for example, we mean that the tested man is 99.99% more likely to be the biological father than another man chosen at random from his same ethnic group. The CPI, or combined paternity index, is a calculation that helps us arrive at the probability of paternity.

How much DNA do aunts and nieces share?

about 25 percent

Aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews
You share about 25 percent of your DNA with a biological aunt, uncle, niece, or nephew. Your aunt or uncle shares 50 percent of their DNA with your parent (their sibling), who shares 50 percent of their DNA with you.

Can an aunt and nephew take a DNA test?

For example, an aunt and a nephew typically only share around 25% of their DNA. So you wouldn’t expect them to match at every marker. By chance, many unrelated people will share DNA at the same number of markers as an aunt and nephew. The test will give you a probability the two are related, not a firm answer.

How do you know if a DNA match is maternal or paternal?

A Y-DNA test examines the genetic code located on the Y chromosome, which is only found in biological males. Since this chromosome is inherited exclusively from the father and never from the mother, the DNA analyzed on this type of test will give you information that is specific to the paternal line in your family.

How do you read a paternity index?

The Combined Paternity Index is the number on the lower right side of the report, directly under the Locus/Allele chart. If the tested male is considered the biological father, there is a number listed for the Combined Paternity Index. If the tested male is not considered the biological father, the report shows “0.”
