23andMe Genetics: Maternal Connections

23andMe Maternal Connections 23andMe looks at traits that show the strength of correlations between mothers and their children. Daughter Son 2.9x 2.4x higher odds of having dimples higher odds of having dimples If Mom Has Dimples 3.5х 2.9x higher odds of sneezing in bright light higher odds of sneezing in bright light If Mom Sneezes in Bright Light 1.7x 1.8x higher odds of crying easily higher odds of crying easily If Mom Cries Easily 3.3х 1.5х higher odds of preferring listening to talking higher odds of preferring listening to talking* If Mom Prefers Listening to Talking 2.8x 3.3x higher odds of being able to sing back a note higher odds of being able to sing back a note If Mom Can Sing Back a Note 4.6x 1.5x higher odds of being very higher odds of being very conscientious conscientious* If Mom is Very Conscientious SOURCE: Correlations calculated by looking at traits among a group of more than 15,000 couples with children who are 23andMe customers, all of whom consented to research. In some cases the sample size used to calculate the correlations numbered in the hundreds because not every customer answered survey questions. Statistical significance was computed using a false discovery rate of .05. The correlations that were not statistically significant are noted (*).

23andMe researchers looked at the genetic correlations between mothers and their children and found that more traits are inherited from your mother than your father.
