|MadSci Network: General Biology|
Dear Alan, A quick trip to our Latent Prints Section resulted in three references to check out: -Ashbaugh, David R. Quantitative-Qualitative Friction Ridge Analysis, CRC Press, New York, NY, 1999, "Genetics and Uniqueness", pp. 183-191. -Olsen, Robert D. Scott's Fingerprint Mechanics, Charles C. Thomas, Springfield, Illinois, 1978. -The International Association of Identification web site at www.theiai.org which apparently will conduct a query for you for free. I wish you luck in your search. Dale L. Laux Forensic Scientist
