A 18-year-old female asked:

Is angelmans syndrome sex linked?

No: This is a classic homework question and an important idea. If a child does not have a good copy of ubd3a from mom, the child gets angelman's. If a child does not have a good copy of ubd3a from dad, the child gets prader-willi. This is imprinting and is a subtle concept, unlike the easier idea of sex-linked inheritance.
