Melbourne, 16 July: Cheap at-home DNA tests can predict whether your partner is likely to be a cheating love rat or they are marriage material. Experts say just using a strand of your partner’s hair and one USB-like device that can be plugged into the side of a laptop can find out whether your partner is likely to cheat on you. They said it won’t be too long before it’s on a supermarket shelf near you, The Age reported.
“I think it’s inevitable because it’s going to be really easy to do. It’s quick, cheap and you’ll be able to buy it off the shelf and just do it,” said Prof Michael Gillings from Macquarie University in Australia. The tests using the technology, called nanopore DNA sequencing, can detect whether someone is more likely to commit long-term or to cheat among other things. PTI
