that a person's handedness - the condition whereby they prefer to use
their right or left hand - was genetic, but it was unknown which genes
determined a person's dexterity, until recently. A STUDY compiled using
research from the Universities of Oxford, St Andrews, Bristol and the
Max Plank Institute in Nijmegen, in the Netherlands - has isolated the
network of genes responsible.
They also found that the network establishes the…
