New test to tell if your DNA came from mom or dad

In a development expected to improve the process of matching organ donors and understanding how genes contribute to diseases, researchers have devised a method that can help determine whether or not a specific genetic sequence came from an individual’s mother or father.

The technique, which was developed by experts from the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research and is described in the latest edition of the journal Nature Biotechnology, helps address a longstanding challenge when it comes togenome sequencing – discovering which traits come from which parent. The authors believe that the technique could improve personalized medicine.
