What is a home aunt-uncle DNA test (Avuncular)?
A home aunt-uncle DNA test “avuncular” test determines if a person is biologically related to a sibling of the father in question. This DNA test is a good option when the father is not available for testing, and the only relative available is a single sibling (brother or sister) of the father. Siblings share approximately 50% of their DNA, therefore an uncle or aunt shares about 25% of their DNA with a nephew/niece. EDC has the most extensive array of genetic markers available to resolve biological relationship like aunt–uncle DNA testing, which is often another way to determine paternity. Other labs do not have this extensive set of markers.
The home aunt-uncle DNA test “avuncular” report indicates the “probability of relatedness” and a likelihood ratio similar to a Family Reconstruction report.:
- We strongly encourage the mother to participate so we can account for one half of the child’s genetic material and provide a more precise result.
- Inquire if more than one sibling of the alleged parent is available for testing. This will result in the potential to more accurately ascertain the relationship.
- In scenarios with limited relatives to test, we may recommend utilizing Y-STR or Mt-DNA testing as well. This testing uses the lineage to confirm relationships. Some DNA is passed down only from mother to child, and male to male.

Legal vs. at-home aunt-uncle test?

Referred to as a non-legal aunt-uncle test or at-home aunt-uncle test. This aunt-uncle test is used when you just need or want answers regarding genetic relationships. A pre-paid express envelope is provided so that you may expedite your DNA samples to the lab.
