DNA and Parents
Country: United States
Date: August 2007
i just want to know how DNA and forensic science
helped in reuniting a baby boy with his parents.
By comparing the number of copies of various "junk" DNA genes
in the child and parents, you can show with a million to one or
higher probability that the presumed parents are the real parents.
