Hey @leftright,

this must be one of the most interesting searches on Digle so far.

I have found a really in-depth article below which answers your question really well.

Out of the four responses, three say YES; you do get 25% of your genes from each grandparent ( and in turn, 50% from each parent). However, they explain that the answer is a little bit more complicated than that:

it basically comes down to recombination; the process whereby your parents DNA combine into one chromosome which is passed onto the child.

Take a look at the study attached below whereby this question was put to the test and if you look at the results of men and women, you'll see that each parent roughly pass on 0.5 (men vary between 0.4 & 0.6) of their DNA to their child therefore meaning that yes, the grandparent would pass on 25%.

I hope this is helpful to you,

thanks,
Rosie
