Y Chromosome Testing

Y Chromosome TestA Y chromosome test is used to verify a biological family relationship when a male’s alleged father is unavailable for a DNA paternity test. A son inherits his Y chromosome from his father, and the chromosome does not change from father to son.

The Y chromosome is said to mutate once every 10,000 years  Hence, a male’s Y chromosome can be tested and compared to check whether the test participants are biologically related through the paternal family line.

If the males in question are related, their Y chromosome will be identical.

Please note, while a Y chromosome test can demonstrate that two males are paternally related, it cannot determine the nature of the relationship such as whether they are father or son, grandfather or grandson, uncle or nephew etc.
