Genetic Testing?? 

Genetic testing is done by analyzing small samples of blood or body tissue. They determine whether you, your partner, or your child carry certain inherited disorders. Genetic testing has developed enough so that doctors can determine missing of defetive genes. There are many types of genetic tests, but it depends on the particular illness that a doctor suspects. Many different types of body fluids and tissues can be used in genetic testing. For deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) screening, only a very tiny bit of bood, skin, bone, or other tissue is needed.  (Citation 4)
