Genetics is the study of genes, genetic variation, and heredity in living organisms it is generally considered a field of biology, but intersects frequently with many other life sciences and is strongly linked with the study of information systems the discoverer of genetics is gregor mendel, a late 19th-century scientist and augustinian friarmendel studied trait inheritance, patterns in. Facts about genetics chromosome abnormalities are a significant cause of medical and developmental problems we believe that children’s health research, and especially genetic research, is dramatically under-supported. Yes, several different tests are available some tests look for a specific harmful brca1 or brca2 gene mutation that has already been identified in another family member other tests check for all of the known harmful mutations in both genes. Biology explore the science of life by learning about the systems and structures that make up the organisms of our world.
Genes are the building blocks of inheritance passed from parent to child, they contain instructions for making proteins if genes don't produce the right proteins or don't produce them correctly, a child can have a genetic disorder gene therapy is an experimental technique that uses genes to treat or prevent disease.

All that changed when james watson and francis crick came along with their discovery of the double helix structure of dna in 1953, a definition soon presented itself: a gene was a stretch of dna.
All about genetics many traits in plants and animals are heritable (can be passed down from one generation to the next), and genetics is the study of these heritable factors specific conditions and rare syndromes may have a genetic basis where this is the case, there will be a variety of causes for example, the causes may include a single. In biology, a gene is a sequence of dna or rna that codes for a molecule that has a function during gene expression, the dna is first copied into rna the rna can be directly functional or be the intermediate template for a protein that performs a function. Steps 1-3 are applicable to all students, giving them a review of genetics content depending on the class level, step 4 or step 5 directs the students to write a paper defending their personal position on the latest uses of biotechnology. Gene - the functional and physical unit of heredity passed from parent to offspring genes reside on chromosomes genes reside on chromosomes if a gene is like a chapter in a book, the chromosome is the book itself.

Cancer is a genetic disease—that is, cancer is caused by certain changes to genes that control the way our cells function, especially how they grow and divide genes carry the instructions to make proteins, which do much of the work in our cells certain gene changes can cause cells to evade.
All traits and personality characteristics, from height to fear of heights, are driven by a complex interplay of genes and environmental feedback we now know that the lion's share of human genes. The cell's secret code all the proteins in your body are made from protein building blocks called amino acids there are twenty different amino acids used to make proteins, but there are only 4 different nucleotides in dna and rna.
