What Is an Avuncular DNA Test?

An Avuncular DNA test aka an Aunt/Uncle DNA test is a good alternative option to use to help determine the paternity of a child when the alleged father or grandparents are not available for testing.

An avuncular DNA test is a type of DNA test used to determine the probability of a biological relationship between two family members. An avuncular DNA test focuses on specific regions of your DNA that are passed down from grandparents and it can be used to determine the likelihood that two family members are, in fact, related. The report generated by an avuncular DNA test will indicate the probability of relatedness.

It is estimated that there are over 10 million unknown fathers in the United States alone. If a child’s biological father is unknown, an avuncular DNA test may be a good solution in order to find the true paternity of a child. Families can have mixed feelings about using an avuncular DNA test to determine paternity when the father is unavailable to perform a DNA test.
