    Abstract

    A paternity test is presented in which a father and his two children possessed an extremely rare amorphic gene R−29(r=, –––). One of the children was determined to be illegitimate at the first trial as her Rh phenotype was R2R2 (ccDEE) and the father's phenotype was R1R1 (CCDee). At the Court of Appeal, however, the rare Rh gene (r= –––) was shown to be inherited from the father to the appellant child through extended tests including her brother whose phenotype was also R2R2 (ccDEE). She was acknowledged to be legitimate.
