Overview

Life as we know it couldn’t exist without genetic material and genes. Genetic material provides organisms with their unique properties, including the ability to reproduce, and is the channel for evolution.

At its core, genetics is the study of the variation between living things – humans, animals and plants – and how this is inherited.

Study genetics to find out how cells work at a molecular level, how mutations can cause disease, why these mutations occur in populations and the answers to many more fascinating questions about life!
