BHU scientist, Dr Chandana, is one of the scientists who have found that fingerprint patterns in humans are determined by limb development genes. 

Dr. Chandana is from the Centre for Genetic Disorders, Institute of Science, BHU. 

Reportedly, the study was conducted by a team of international scientists from Shanghai, Australia, UK, USA, and India. 

BHU Scientist finds fingerprint

The study conducted by BHU Scientist was published 

The study was recently published in one of the prestigious scientific journals of Science CELL. 

The team studied DNA from more than 23,000 individuals from different ethnic groups to understand the genes responsible for fingerprint patterning, and identified 43 genetic loci contributing to fingerprint patterning. 

Dr Chandana in a statement said: “There are no fingerprints in mice, but it was interesting to develop a method of scoring the ridges (the analogue of fingerprints). When we compared these ridge patterns between modified EVI1 and normal mouse, we found a similar result as humans.” 

“I am delighted that our young colleague Dr Chandana from the Centre of Genetic Disorders has published some very high-quality research work in CELL, one of the most renowned Journals of Science. This study can be a starting point for the use of dermatoglyphics and related genetics in identification of congenital disorders and in public health,” said Vice-Chancellor Prof. Sudhir K Jain.
