Stressed Parents Can Blame Freud And Spock And Trust Guts

Friday, April 23, 2010

By Alvaro Castillo

21st century parents may be the most anxious and guilt-ridden parents of any generation. Prior to the 20th century most parents viewed children as resilient and that the stresses of life would strengthen them. Most of today’s parents view children as fragile and believe that only a very careful, closely supervised act of parenting will imbue children with sufficient confidence and self-esteem to succeed.

The 20th century created huge erosion in confidence in parents ability to raise their children. This was due to multiple factors, some of the most significant were Freud’s claims that all adult neuroses could be traced to parenting mistakes. The behaviorist Watson aided and abetted this view by stating that parents could cause any child to become any kind of person simply by following his behavioral strategies.  Both of these famous physiologists were followed by  Dr. Spock, who was read by millions and frequently changed his views.

DNA Paternity Testing – 4 Key Questions You Should Ask Your DNA Testing Provider

posted by DNA Identifiers @ 1:23 PM
Friday, April 9, 2010

By Peter Vine

DNA paternity testing in its simplest form is the use of DNA technology to provide information about the parentage of an individual (usually a child). The mother of the child is rarely disputed, and most of the time DNA testing is requested to inform the likely father of a child.

DNA is inherited from our parents, with half coming from the mother, and the other half from the father. This pattern of inheritance allows the opportunity where the mother of the child is not disputed, to produce a DNA profile of the biological father.

The process is relatively simple in that the final DNA profile of the child is composed of a series of bands which can only come from the two parents. If the mother’s bands are deducted from the child profile the remainder must come from the biological father.

Using A Home DNA Test Kit

By Peter Vine

A home DNA test kit is exclusively used only at the sampling stage of a home based DNA paternity test. The key components in the kit is usually a set cotton swabs, and some DNA sample envelopes. These two components allow the obtaining of the DNA material which will ultimately be used to determine the biological relationship of a child to the possible parents.

Using a home DNA test kit is very straightforward and requires so little expertise, that a child could preform the collection.

By Groshan Fabiola

An increase in stories in the media about many uses for DNA tests has caught the public attention in a big way.  DNA testing is big business, in many fields. Programs like CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Heroes and even popular soap opera’s regularly feature DNA tests as the basis for their often thrilling story lines.  While these television shows are informative in many cases they also encourage many misconceptions about DNA testing, in addition the public seems to believe that DNA testing can fix a variety of life’s problems.  The real miracle stories are far less talked about and even more amazing than TV dramas and soap operas can convey.

So what are some of the most common misconceptions about DNA testing?

What is PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction)?

posted by DNA Identifiers @ 10:10 AM
Friday, April 9, 2010

By Grant Kretzer

One of the issues that scientists commonly encounter when they are processing a DNA test is that they don’t have enough DNA to work with. By using a method called polymerase chain reaction (PCR), scientists can take a single copy of a piece of DNA and multiply it consistently until they have millions, if not more, copies of the DNA piece to work with.  Many times scientists are given just a few strands of DNA to work with, this can prove challenging when trying to obtain a sample. The main problem is that sometimes, more abundant DNA is required for testing purposes to produce accurate results. Often, a scientist is looking for thousands, if not millions, of different chains of the DNA in question so that they can continuously run tests on in order to produce accurate results.

The name polymerase chain reaction (PCR) comes from the key component in the amplification of DNA.  DNA polymerase is an enzyme that assists in the replication of DNA. They catalyze (speed up) the polymerization of deoxyribonucleotides alongside the DNA strand. These polymerases read the code and then use it as a template. By using it as a template, they are able to make another strand and then another strand, to create the required quantity of material for examination.

Of course there are many different types of the science of DNA testing that have been helping people for many years, all the same there are always a few types of DNA testing that find more use in the public arena than other types.

Paternity testing is a procedure that can actually determine the biological relationship between a man and a child and in some cases can be accomplished before the child is even born.

The Changing Face Of Paternity Testing

posted by DNA Identifiers @ 10:02 AM
Thursday, April 8, 2010

Paternity testing and the way in which it is done have undergone tremendous change over the last twenty years.

The first changes is that the number of people seeking paternity testing has increased in leaps and bounds over the last couple of decades. As people adopt more and more liberal sexual attitudes, many men are finding themselves doubting the paternity of children they are alleged to have fathered.  The only way out of such disputes is often a paternity test.
