Auto Immune Diseases and DNA testing

I have just tested positive to HLR B27 (an auto immune disease group)and am wondering if it would be possible to see if my father's DNA has this gene. )He is no longer alive.) I may be asking a silly question but would like to know if I inherited it from him. Thanks.

Since FTDNA tests are done using cheek swabs, your father's DNA can't be tested here. There might be testing labs that could do a genetic test (probably quite a bit more expensive than the Family Finder test), but you'd need some sort of DNA sample from your deceased father.
