A child inherits half of its DNA from each parent. When the DNA profiles of a child and the alleged father are compared and analysed, the inclusion of the mother’s DNA profile allows our scientists to account for the child’s DNA which is maternally inherited. This means that it is clear which of the child’s markers have been paternally inherited and the statistical analysis of paternity is therefore more conclusive.
