Can anyone comment about how right- and left-handedness is inherited? My son (2 1/2 years old) seems to prefer his left hand for accomplishing certain tasks such as eating, though for other things he prefers his right. My wife and I are both right- handed. There are no lefties in my wife's family that we know of, but my father's brother is left-handed (don't know about my paternal grandparents). Is handedness a Mendelian characteristic or are other factors involved? Thanks!!
