what role do genetics have in the "timing" of ossification, that is, the age during which ossification occurs, and in the secretion (and the timing of the secretion) of the hormones that make bones ossify, such as estrogens? For istance: if my father continued to grow till 21 years of age, and my uncles (my mother's brothers) continued till about 18, is it likely that my bones will not ossify until 18 or 21 years of age? Thanks
