What happens to DNA in blood when it goes into someone else? Ricardo, Swansea

Answer **Definitive**

Name: Professor Howe, Birmingham

Qualification: Professor in public understanding in science

Answer: Red blood cells don’t have any DNA because they don’t have a nucleus in order so that they can carry more oxygen. White blood cells however do have a nucleus, but they last for about a day, so it might be possible to find some DNA of a donor for a very short amount of time.
