How are DNA changes found?

Print

The most detailed way to look at a person’s DNA is by using DNA sequencing. Most of the changes that cause diseases are small, like changing a single letter somewhere within the entire set of encyclopedias (remember, each chromosome is like one encyclopedia). DNA sequencing is a tool to read all the letters in the sequence of DNA one at a time.
