Investigation Puts Ancestry DNA Kits To The Test Among Sets Of Triplets

  • Published: 22 February 2017
  • Millions of people are purchasing and using home DNA kits to determine their ancestry. Inside Edition enlisted the help of two sets triplets and a set of quadruplets to investigate the accuracy of the at-home tests. Their ancestry should be absolutely identical since they all came from the same egg. Unfortunately, the reveal confused and disappointed the sisters because of the varied results. The set of quadruplets were almost identical and did not have the variations seen in the triplets.

                              you guys know that dna is unique, right? like a fingerprint

                              just use google, i found this in 30 seconds:

                              Because of recombination, siblingsonly share about 50 percent of thesame DNA, on average, Dennis says. So while biological siblings have the same family tree, their genetic code might be different in at least one of the areas looked at in a given test. That's true even for fraternal twins
