Unrelated paternity DNA test - jameson245 - 01-29-2017

I was with my husband and others at a NC tourist attraction called "Blowing Rock"., a rock outcrop at top of a mountain, always windy.  Anyway, this report actually flew into me, wrapped around my leg.  And for educational purposes, I will add here for study and discussion.

Every person has 2 numeric values at each loci - - the child gets one from each parent. I covered the names before copying the paper - - but you can see at the bottom, the man WAS the father. Sorry it isn't all neat, but I was in a hurry to get it copied.

Note how different loci have different values. (The PI)  I think that is based on the purpose of that gene.  Brown eyes would have a certain numerical value and that would be far less than the gene carrying something like Huntington's disease or Tay Sachs disease. 

Anyway, I admit I am NO expert on DNA.  It confuses the heck out of me.  But I do try and thought this report rather enlightening.
