ACROSS MY DESK: Sperm sleuth tracks down father

Sydney Morning Herald
November 4, 2005

"A 15-year-old tracked down his anonymous sperm donor father using nothing more than a swab of saliva and the internet. [...] New Scientist magazine reported how the boy traced his father from the Y chromosome, which is passed from father to son virtually unchanged. The boy took a swab of his own saliva and sent it off to an online genealogy DNA-testing service, www.familytreedna.com."
