What will happen to my saliva sample?
The interviewer will post the saliva samples to a research laboratory at the University of Bristol. A sample of DNA will be extracted from the saliva and stored for genetic research in the future. The saliva sample and DNA samples will be stored securely and anonymously. Your family’s name and address will not be attached to the saliva sample when it is sent to the laboratory. Any researchers using the DNA will not have access to your family’s name and address.
