Objectives : To analyze the inheritance of fingerprints and blood groups and to finally trace (if any) the possible association between the inheritance of fingerprints and blood groups. Methods: A number of 100 students were randomly chosen from the campus of Nagaon College, Autonomous, Nagaon, Assam. A pre-designed form containing the required space for sample collection was made and distributed, explaining the procedure for thumb impression collection and blood groups. After collection, the prints were classified according to Henry’s system, where fingerprints are classified into 3 groups- loops, whorls and arches. Findings: It was observed that Arches which is possibly a recessive trait is more prevalent in Blood Group O which is also the recessive blood type. And loops and whorls was more prevalent in blood types A and B which are co-dominant in nature Novelty: Arch patterns might be of a recessive nature, but the dominancy or recessivity of loops and whorls cannot be firmly determined.
