Ancestral lineage testing and genetic genealogy are methods for understanding more about the origins of your ancestors.
Direct paternal lineage is the line which follows our paternal ancestry which consists only of men. The DNA pattern analysis of Y chromosome, which is present only in men,can trace one’s father, his father, his father’s father, and so on… The paternal lineage tells us one’s paternal ancestry.
Y chromosomes are sex chromosomes (there are X & Y chromosomes, females have X X while males have X Y, in simple terms), they carry the genetic pattern which makes anyone male or female. Men receive the X chromosome of their mother and the Y chromosome of their father. ONLY sons inherit their father’s Y chromosome, not daughters! At DNA Diagnostics and Genetic Center India, we use paternal line DNA testing with STR markers which are actually places where one’s DNA has a variable number of repeated segments. These STR (Short Tandem Repeats) values slowly transition from generation to generation. Our lab experts able able to define distinctive and conclusive results by way of testing multiple STR markers which form the signatures for YSTR paternal lineage.
Many of our clients use this paternal lineage test to establish relationships with their long lost relatives, paternal ancestors, etc. A common paternal line may be established and then broken links of paternity may be joined by testing the DNA profiles of alleged father(s). At DNA Diagnostics and Genetic Center India, there are various configurations of Paternal Lineage tests available depending upon the availability and willingness of your relatives, parents, Grandparents, etc. our experts may suggest the most suitable, cost effective and accurate tests for your particular requirements.
