Y-STR testing determines whether two males share the same paternal lineage. The Y-STR paternal lineage DNA test is based on the fact that the Y chromosome is passed from father to son relatively unchanged through many generations. Only males can undergo Y-STR testing because females do not possess a Y chromosome.

Y-STR paternal lineage testing determines whether or not Y-STR markers are consistent, or not consistent, with the conclusion that the tested males may be related through a common male ancestor.

Y-STR analysis cannot distinguish a specific relationship between males who belong to the same paternal line. However, it is useful for excluding males from an alleged biological relationship. For example, if a male child and his alleged uncle (alleged father’s full brother) are tested, their Y-STR profiles must match. If they do not, then the alleged uncle is excluded (not considered a biological uncle) and the alleged father is probably not the biological father.

Once we receive your samples, your AABB-accredited court-admissible test results will be completed in as little 5 business days. Rush testing options are available.
