Understanding DNA Evidence

“Hello there! I’m here to provide you with a bit of information on DNA Evidence. I would like to remind you that suggestions on this post should not be taken as medical advice, legal advice, therapy, etc. or as a one-size-fits-all approach. Keep in mind that every individual’s journey of experiencing and navigating through stress or trauma is distinctive because you are one of a kind and no person is truly like you! Experiencing abuse in any form is NOT OKAY, but what you are experiencing as a result of abuse is valid. Please know that healing is not a formula and is not for anyone else to define for you. You do you, and you follow all that you need to follow, to help yourself. If you need additional resources or just someone to talk to, feel free to reach out to Imaara Foundation."

What does DNA mean?

DNA refers to material found in cells – and is unique to each individual (except in the case of identical twins) since it helps determine characteristic features such as the eye color, hair color and texture, skin color, among other things. DNA is collected from body fluids such as blood, saliva, sweat, semen and urine, aside of skin tissue.
