- A biological sample will be obtained by a blood draw. In adults, we will obtain a blood sample of 1-2 tablespoons (10-30 mL). For children, the amount will be smaller depending on their weight: 1 mL per kg to a maximum of 30 mL.
- If a blood draw is refused, DNA can be taken from a cheek swab, spit sample or fingerstick.
- If a participant is having surgery for a medical reason, we may request a tissue sample (for example: skin, bone, or muscle). If there were to be extra tissue, amniotic fluid, other biological samples available from a procedure performed for clinical indications, we may request a sample.
