In a recent general biology lab, we studied genotype and phenotype.  The 
lab ended with a fingerprint analysis of all the students.  Some 
fingerprint classifications were expressed very heavily in females and not 
in males.  Are these results a factor of a small sample size, or are 
fingerprints sex-linked traits?  I've spent several hours at the library 
and on-line in search of this answer to no avail.
