Could someone please tell me something about the inheritance of baldness,
i.e. is it really an X-linked trait? Thanks.
Yes, the most typical baldness - "male pattern baldness" is indeed
an X-linked trait. If a woman gets two copies of X chromosomes that
both carry this trait, she too might show signs of premature baldness.
