DNA Shows A Mother Was Also Her Daughter's Uncle - How Scientists Solved This Medical Mystery

DNA Shows A Mother Was Also Her Daughter’s Uncle – How Scientists Solved This Medical Mystery

How can a paternity test suggest that a mother is also the father of her daughter? The answer to this medical mystery, sparked by a puzzling paternity test result, is “When the genes of a missing twin brother live in the mother’s DNA.” The finding, which genetics experts reported earlier this month, suggests such human …
