Dermatoglyphics

This is the study of finger prints and other dermal prints such as palmar prints and prints of sole (or plantar prints). It is thought to be inherited in a complex manner, i.e. by the interplay of several genes. But there are certain components of dermatoglyphics which are thought to be inherited in a multifactorial manner. Dermatoglyphics is therefore the name given to the study of pattern of dermal ridges, of the sole and palm and it also includes study of finger print, palmar prints and creases.
