In science:

The network theory of gynandromorph development has direct relevance to understanding sexual dimorphism (differences in morphology between male and female organisms of the same species) and medical pathologies such as hemihyperplasia (asymmetric development of normally symmetric body parts in a unisexual individual).

Fig.7c depicts a symmetric male “heart” in an otherwise female body.
A Developmental Network Theory of Gynandromorphs, Sexual Dimorphism and Species Formation

A Developmental Network Theory of Gynandromorphs, Sexual Dimorphism and Species Formation
Definitions: Synsexhemimorphs are same sex (male or female) organisms with asymmetric development, of normally symmetric body parts/sections, resulting from different parental allelic, developmental control networks ( CENEs).
A Developmental Network Theory of Gynandromorphs, Sexual Dimorphism and Species Formation
Androhemimorphs are overtly male organisms with asymmetric body parts/sections resulting from different, allelic parental developmental control networks or CENEs.
A Developmental Network Theory of Gynandromorphs, Sexual Dimorphism and Species Formation
Male S.D. rats (CENPALAB, Havana, Cuba) with a body weight of 200-240 g were used for the experiments. The animals were housed in groups of 4 per cage in a room with controlled 12:12 light/dark cycle and ad libitum food and water.
