Tip of the Month – February 2011

The AABB 9th Edition Standard 5.3 states that when testing first degree relationships (paternity or maternity), autosomal loci must be included for all legal tests.

This means that anytime we are comparing a child to a possible father, a child to a possible mother, or possible full siblings (full vs. half or full vs. unrelated) autosomal loci must be included. Autosomal loci are the standard 16 markers used in testing. A Y chromosome or Mitochondrial DNA test can be run in addition to the autosomal test, and cannot be the ONLY test run for first degree relationships.
