Siblingship DNA Testing

Learn About Testing For Sibling Reunions (Siblingship DNA Testing)


Siblingship Testing

Although somewhat more complicated, the same DNA testing procedures that are used to establish parent-child relationships in paternity and maternity testing can also be used to confirm a biological relationship between suspected brothers and sisters (if two or more individuals have common parents).

This is commonly referred to as "siblingship testing," and can actually be performed between individuals who suspect they are full siblings, with both of their parents being the same, or where they suspect they are just half siblings, where they share only one common parent.

There are two types of DNA Siblingship tests for which samples can be tested.

* The Half-siblingship DNA Test
* The Full-siblingship DNA Test

Half-siblingship exists if two or more individuals have one common biological parent.

Full-siblingship exists if two or more individuals have the same biological parents.

Although siblingship testing can be performed by using DNA test samples from only the suspected siblings, the test results will be far more conclusive for suspected full siblings if test samples from one or more of their common parents can also be obtained and tested.

In the case of suspected half-siblings, the conclusiveness of test results can be significantly improved if test samples from their common parent, or from one or both of their non-common parents can also be obtained and tested.

It is just a question of what test samples can be obtained and how accurate you want the test results to be. In every case, it will always be better to go with more test samples rather than less.
