No medical research funding was used on this work. The paper was written in the authors' own time.
We carried out this research predominantly on long car journeys around the motorway networks of the UK with our three children. The paper is written, in the spirit of the Christmas BMJ, to illustrate genetic concepts to the generalist reader using a light-hearted example. JK Rowling has been widely accredited with encouraging children to read again in this electronic age, and we hoped that we might follow her example by bringing some of the excitement of contemporary genetics to a wider audience.
For details of our funded programmes of research please see http://www.well.ox.ac.uk, http://www.ndm.ox.ac.uk and http://www.npeu.ox.ac.uk.
