Abstract There are substantial phenotypic differences between the male and female human. Several complex traits have recently been tested to see whether these phenotypic differences are explained by differences in genetic control between males and females. While some differences in genetic control between males and females are detected, overall the results demonstrate that the genetic control of complex traits in humans is largely the same across the sexes.
