The benefits, to non-scientists, of DNA research: Lennon’s Tooth

HERE COMES THE SON Dentist who owns John Lennon’s tooth will use DNA test to find Beatle’s potential love children in bid to claim slice of his £400m estate
Dr Michael Zuk, from Alberta, Canada, purchased the famous body part at auction in 2011 for £20,000
