A male with XYY chromosomes more likely to have a boy child?


I'm doing some Research and i can't find out what the offspring of people with chromosomes paired differently would be. I know it is a slim chance, but what would the offspring of XYY and XXY?
Thank you!
----------

well I did a chart. write xyy horizontally and write xxy vertically (or vice versa), then pair them up. I got, xx, xy, xy, xx,xy,xy, xy, yy, yy. Since you can't have a child with yy, just igorne that. So they have a boy to girl ratio of 5:2 (xx is a girl, and xy is a boy). Hope I help  (+ info)

Is it possible to have XYY in a man ?


What is the possibility of XYY in man because of one I saw on a CSI episode where he had it. My guess if it exists all of them are criminals right or wrong ? Also if it exists what are the extras you have for being a mutant ?
----------

XYY is a genetic mutation basically, not everyone with this mutation is going to be a criminal no. but criminals that have this, it gives us a better understanding as to why. basically XYY, supermale, the extra Y is an extra boost of aggression and the normal things tied into being male. things are doubled like sexual organs, but he'll have more raging hormones and more agression.  (+ info)
