An Aunt Uncle DNA Test, or Avuncular DNA testing is used to establish paternity when the father is not available for testing. An avuncular test will determine if a sibling (a full blood brother or sister) of the father in question is related to a child, and thus prove paternity.
Siblings share roughly 50% of their DNA and a niece or nephew would share approximately 25% of their DNA with their aunt or uncle. So, the report generated by an avuncular DNA test will indicate the probability of relation. We always include the mother in the testing process, especially when testing for legal reasons. Using her genetic DNA markers we can provide the most precise and accurate report. The lab cannot perform this test if the aunt / uncle is NOT a full sibling to the alleged father in question.
