Genomic imprinting and kinship by David Haig( Book )

6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Until twenty years ago we had no idea which of our genes came from our father and which came from our mother. We took it for granted that our genes expressed themselves identically and that there was a 50/50 chance that they came from either parent. We also assumed that they worked in cooperation with each other. The biggest breakdown in genetics in the past two decades has been the discovery of genomic imprinting, which allows us to trace genes to the parent of origin. The author has been at the forefront of theorizing these developments arguing that these "paternally and maternally active genes" comprising less than one percent of our total gene count are far from being cooperative, and have in fact been shown to be in competition with one another.
