TNG and DNA Tests
TNG v11 added the capability to track DNA Tests.
From the TNG V11 Change Log
- 16. DNA: A new Admin category has been added for DNA Tests. After a test is created, it may be linked to any number of people in the database. If a person is linked to any tests, those tests will be shown on the person's individual page.
