Family Tree DNA
This DNA testing service includes a surname-based reconstruction program to help you connect with relatives when the conventional paper trail ends. Probably the most popular genealogy DNA testing service, with one of the largest DNA databases as well.
Genetic fingerprinting (also called DNA testing, DNA typing, or DNA profiling) is a technique used to distinguish between individuals of the same species using only samples of their DNA. Although two individuals will have the vast majority of their DNA sequence in common, DNA profiling exploits highly variable repeat sequences called VNTRs.
DNA and Labeling Techniques
A variety of probes can be used for in situ hybridization, depending on the application and the labeling strategy. In general, RNA probes (riboprobes) are now more commonly used. However, some laboratories may still prefer to use DNA probes for in situ hybridization.
