Absolutely! DNA fingerprinting is reliable. DNA fingerprinting works to analyze the genetic material in a person. This can be done by taken samples such as saliva, blood, semen, hair or other tissue. We all have a unique DNA sequence, so the DNA identified during DNA fingerprinting is specific to one person. No two people can have the same DNA sequence.

This makes it easy to detect the unique features of a person. DNA fingerprint can detect similarities between bloodline relations. Many people have found lost family relations through the use of DNA fingerprinting. It has proven to be helpful in criminal investigation. The results are absolutely reliable and it has helped solve many mysteries in our world today.

DNA fingerprinting is incredibly reliable. In the same way that no one will have your fingerprints except in cases of identical twins, you will not share the same DNA fingerprint as anyone else. They are similarities in the DNA which can be compared to other people who have also had their DNA fingerprinted and there may be similarities between them but they will not be identical.

For example, comparing your DNA fingerprint to a relative's DNA fingerprint will show that you are related because of similarities in your DNA, but it will not be exactly the same.
