We know that fingerprints are specific for each individual and that no two persons have the same fingerprints.Having this in mind then do identical twins who are genotypicaly identical ( nature's way of cloning) have the same fingerprint??? .If they do not, this means that fingerprints are not coded by genes so if they are not gene controlled then how come when one gets a cut or abrasion on his/her hand or finger the same fingerprints resume after the wound has healed itself? Thank you very much.
