This test is based on the scientific fact that DNA is passed down to several generations without being altered. Here we are talking about the DNA that is passed on from the mother to the child.By scrutinizing the samples of DNA you could find out the maternal history of a individual far back to the descendants that populated the earth primarily.
Mitochondrial DNA is outside the nucleus since only the male nuclear genetic material enters the egg.
We can get a Maternal lineage test by examining markers on the mtDNA. These markers can trace our ancestors and where they belong to several years ago. This test is expressed in haplogroups of people who belong to a certain geographical area where they settled long ago.
The maternal lineage test is veryreliable because it is a scientifically proved that mitochondrial DNA is passed from the mother to the child. The mtDNA have markers that can be traced to our initial ancestors who inhabited the earth thousands of years ago.
