The doctor may also look at the blood for changes in chromosome 13.
Elizabeth Goldmuntz, MD: So you can see that the genetic basis of these disorders can encompass either complete change in chromosome number, like having a complete extra copy of a chromosome.
The research shows that, for the bearded dragon at least, the W chromosome is not necessary in producing a female.
The team suspects that a double dose of a particular gene on the Z chromosome is instead crucial for maleness, and that this gene is inactivated by high temperatures.
Do they match the variation in chromosome numbers?
So, adding some Y chromosome is supposed to be a good thing?
