Genealogical DNA tests and halocho #dna

Benjamin First

Hello ,

I was wondering if anyone could tell me what contemporary halachic
authoraties say about recreational DNA tests. There are lots of
discussions/shiurim online about the use of DNA testing in halocho in
serious cases eg 911 however I haven't found anyone who discusses what
contemporary halachic authoraties have to say about taking a DNA test
for recreational genealogical purposes. I understand that the
jewishgen discussion group is not for halachic discussions however if
someone can point me in the right direction it would be appreciated.

Kind Regards

Binyomin First
