Genetics has now assumed a central role in biology, as an understanding gene structure and expression is important in the study of cell biology, biochemistry, microbiology and biotechnology. The transmission of character from parents to off springs is known as Heredity. Hereditary characters are transmitted from parents to off springs through the basic units of heredity called genes. Hence the science of heredity is called Genetics.
The world is a colossal genetics laboratory. The truly important genetic experiment is continuing outside the research laboratory in the world surrounding us. This colossal genetics experiment is responsible for the continuity of life on planet earth.
Scientists throughout the world are busy identifying and studying genes that control the entire spectrum of phenotypic traits in living organisms, especially humans.
Two recent events in the genetics arena are attracting critical attention:
1. The launching of the "Human Genome" project and
2. The imminent green light for the first human somatic cell "Gene Therapy" experiment.
