Summary:
Normally, a person developed from an XX-zygote will be female and one developed from an XY-zygote will be male. It is however possible to have XY women and XX men. These anomalies have been found to involve a molecule called SRY (sex-determinining region Y gene). This book presents the latest research in this field from around the world.
