Genetic Discovery’s mtDNA comparison test is an important test for determining whether persons are biologically related through their mother’s side of the family. This test will compare your DNA with a another persons DNA to verify if you are related through the maternal side.
mtDNA is an abbreviation for mitochondrial DNA, a category of DNA that is found in the mitochondria. Mitochondrial DNA is passed from a mother to her children, making it valuable for tracing individuals’ maternal relatives. (Both sons and daughters have mtDNA from their mothers, however only daughters can pass their mtDNA to their children.)
