Many researchers believe that the best linear unbiased estimation BLUE and best linear unbiased prediction BLUP can be achieved respectively for fixed and random effects from mixed model analyses. Methods to deal with the problems are compared and discussed in this article. Trends Genet.
They are composed of DNA and proteins and are located within the nucleus of our cells. Sex Chromosomes. Human body cells have 23 pairs of chromosomes in the nucleus. Grasshoppers, roaches, and other insects have a similar system for determining the sex of an individual. Regina Bailey. Two X chromosomes are needed for the development of fully functioning ovaries.
The female gamete, called the ovum, is nonmotile and relatively large in comparison to the male gamete. The sperm cell determines the sex of an individual in this case. Genes located on the X chromosome are called X-linked genes, and these genes determine X sex-linked traits.
Thus, genetic effects related to hormones are likely to interact with other genetic effects. Nicholas; Mishler, Brent D. While these traits are responsible considerably for sexual dimorphism, sex-influenced traits do not show distinctive expression between women and men.

This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. Bayarri M. This is adaptive because inducing maleness increases the probability of outcrossing as males provide sperm for the females rather than the females becoming hermaphroditic or bisexual and self-fertilizing. This heterogeneous heritability must be attributed to difference in individual genetic effects between women and men.
This is due to the imbalance in dose between women and men.
