mtDNA Test (X-SV Maternal Lineage Test)

mtDNA testing is used to determine whether two or more people are related by sharing a common maternal lineage.

The mtDNA test is based on the mitochondrial DNA sequence variation that is passed on from females to their offspring. Through this test we can determine if two or more people are related through their maternal lineage, or else to confirm if the siblings (male or female) share the same biological mother.

Just like the Y-Chromosome, mitochondrial DNA has an infrequent mutation rate and rarely changes from generation to generation.

Other sibling DNA testing options are available if an mtDNA test is not what you are looking for.

The cost of this test starts from KshXX and depends on how many people are tested. Results are normally available between 10 to 12 business days. 

Males do not pass the X-SV they inherited from their mother to their children.
