The most likely causes of false positives in DNA testing are laboratory or clerical errors. False-negative tests are much more common in DNA testing. False-negative tests can arise for a number of reasons including: genetic heterogeneity (more than one gene is responsible for the condition), PCR artifacts caused by primer binding site polymorphisms and deletions/insertions of the PCR primer sites, deletion/insertion of an entire exon or the entire gene that interferes with PCR amplification, preferential amplification of the smaller allele in a large insertion, and tissue mosaicism.

Osteogenesis Imperfecta Osteogenesis imperfecta is an example of a dominant negative-type mutation. Osteogenesis imperfecta is a group of inherited disorders of type I collagen that predispose a patient to easy fracturing of bones, and skeletal deformity. Ocular findings include thinned sclera. The type I procollagen molecule is formed from two proalpha-1 chains and one proalpha-2 chain. To create a collagen molecule, the three chains form an α-helix beginning at the carboxyl terminus.
