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.
Chronicles the race to capture the complete letter-by-letter sequence . Includes an online version of the television program. Viewable in Quicktime or Real Audio format.
Genome sizes for different organisms. The estimated genome sizes are given for both the organisms currently being sequenced and those for which no sequencing programme is in progress.
Provides a range of notes including landmarks, basic terms and rules, chromosomes and genes, population genetics, viral and bacterial genetics, and plant genetics. Includes links to related resources .
Provides biochemical methods and computer tools to allow students to use their own DNA "fingerprints" as a starting point in the study of human evolution.
Comprehensive subject catalog covering genetics in the biosciences. Provided by the U.S. Department of Energy.
A public radio series that explores the world of genes and genetic science.
A national resource for molecular biology information for the better understanding of molecular processes affecting human health and disease.
