Anybody that watches TV and one of the numerous shows about law enforcement and the cases police detectives work on is familiar with DNA testing or profiling. DNA testing is a test conducted by scientists to assist in the positive identification of individuals by their unique DNA Profile. DNA testing was first introduced in 1994 by a professor at the University of Leicester in England. DNA testing is also performed to identify potential matches of parents and children.
DNA testing in Texas is performed by the professionals at DATCS in Longview and Tyler.

Tests are conducted for a variety of reasons. Some of the most common reasons for tests are because court ordered it to establish paternity or to identify a DNA sample found at places such as crime scenes. DNA testing in Texas most commonly is performed by collecting a buccal swab of the subject. This is the preferred method since it reduces the chance of contamination. Other methods can also be used.DNA testing in Texas is widely accepted by courts of law to establish identity. All 50 states have laws that deal with DNA testing.
