Physicist cracks women’s random but always lucky choice of X chromosome

Writing about web page http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/newsandevents/pressreleases/physicist_cracks_womens/

Human males have both a X and a Y chromosome but females have two X chromosomes. This means that in an early stage in the development of a woman’s fertilised egg the cells need to silence one of those two X chromosomes. This process is crucial to survival and problems with the process are related to serious genetic diseases.
