Are You More Like Your Mom Or Your Dad?

Are You More Like Your Mom Or Your Dad?
Many of your relatives probably have an answer to the question of whether you are more your mother or your father’s child. But the correct answer to the question is not as simple as it might seem.

Genetically, you actually carry more of your mother’s genes than your father’s. That’s because of little organelles that live within your cells, the mitochondria, which you only receive from your mother.

But research has shown that 60% of genes express parent-of-origin effects from the father. It was originally thought that only 95 genes express the parent-of-origin effect. Now it’s known that thousands of your genes express themselves according to what your dad added to the genetic pool.

So, are you more like your mom or your dad?
