Science Biology Genetics
Genetics is the branch of biology which deals with heredity and variation in living organisms.
The modern science of genetics started with the work of Gregor Mendel in the mid-nineteenth century. He found that organisms inherit traits in a discrete way and the basic units of inheritance are now called genes.
