There are only two historical sources that spring to mind which might have Christ's DNA - first is the Shroud of Turin; however the authenticity of that is still a matter of debate. The second is a relic which I believe has been lost in the mists of time, the "True Cross" - the cross upon which Christ was nailed. This was a holy symbol for Byzantine emperors, but I believe was lost when the Turks took over the Byzantine empire.
Given this, the idea that they somehow have his DNA isolated is laughable at best.

(I aim to misbehave.)
Wasn't the True Cross lost to Saladin at the Battle of the Horns of Hattin? Thought I read that somewhere...

How about the nails that held Christ to the Cross that are kept in Rome?
