Native American DNA Testing Services

There are numerous reasons why people are turning to science for reliable answers about their personal ancestry, and we realize that there are specific concerns unique to the Native American community. Native American DNA Testing is performed to determine if documented tribal members are biologically related to individuals seeking enrollment memberships in various tribes, and thus, eligible for tribal benefits. Genetica DNA Laboratories is fully committed to making DNA technology and Native American DNA testing services accessible to the Native American community at large in an affordable, convenient and confidential manner.
We provide a variety of DNA family relationship testing options to suit your unique situation and to meet your tribe's specific Native American DNA testing requirements. These Native American DNA testing services include:
Parentage DNA Testing  determines if two tested individuals are related as parent and child. Paternity DNA Test determines if the tested man is the biological father to the child, and Maternity DNA Test determines if the tested woman if the biological mother to the child
A multitude of genetic family relationship determination tests,   Family Relationship DNA Test,   can be performed. In cases where the alleged father is deceased or unknown, the paternal grandparents can be tested to determine the likelihood they are the child's true paternal grandparents, the  Grandparentage DNA Test.   In the   Sibling DNA Test,   two children are tested to determine whether they share the same biological parent or parents. In cases where a family member is deceased or missing, a DNA reconstruction testing may be performed in order to identify the decedent and/or to determine the person's biological relationship to known family members. Such DNA testing is possible because the genes of the deceased or missing family member are present in his known biological family members (i.e., his parents, his siblings, his known children). See  Family Reconstruction DNA Testing.
Y-STR Paternal Lineage DNA Test. The Y-STR paternal lineage test is used to determine whether two or more males are related through their male lineage. The Y chromosome is passed from father to son and it remains the same through many generations because it has a relatively infrequent mutation rate. Thus, the Y-STR paternal lineage test can determine a father-son relationship, and the Y-STR test can also help to establish biological relationships between males in an extended family (like half-brothers, cousins, etc.).
Mitochondrial Maternal Lineage DNA Test.   Mitochondrial DNA test is used to determine whether two or more people are related through their maternal lineage. Mitochondrial DNA passes without change (except for rare mutations) from mother to all children, sons and daughters, but only daughters pass it to the next generation. Thus, individuals who share the same maternal line will have the same Mitochondrial DNA. Mitochondrial DNA test can help in establishing biological relationships between people in an extended family, like maternal half-siblings, cousins, etc.
Specimens for Native American DNA testing are easily and painlessly obtained from inside of the mouth with a cotton swab. Genetica DNA Laboratories has an extensive network of specimen collection sites nationwide and numerous affiliations with laboratories worldwide. We make the process of specimen collections convenient for everyone involved by handling all of the arrangements.
If you are interested in conducting Native American DNA testing to determine your biological relationship to documented Native American tribal members when applying for tribal membership eligibility, or even simply to understand more about your own heritage, contact us.
