Genes are how living organisms inherit features or traits from their ancestors; for example, children usually look like their parents because they have inherited their parents' genes. Genetics tries to identify which traits are inherited, and explain how these traits are passed from generation to generation.

    Genetics thrills me, for no really good reason. A lot of the books that I read about genetics are really sad because they are about families with genetic disorders. So reading Cats Are Not Peas: A Calico History of Genetics by Laura Gould was really nice. The author writes about cat genetics because she had a male calico cat/5. Books shelved as biology-genetics: The Selfish Gene by Richard Dawkins, The Gene: An Intimate History by Siddhartha Mukherjee, A Crack in Creation: Gene.

    Human matings, like those of experimental organisms, show inheritance patterns both of the type discovered by Mendel (autosomal inheritance) and of sex linkage. Because controlled experimental crosses cannot be made with humans, geneticists must resort to scrutinizing records in the hope that informative matings have been made by chance. Such a scrutiny of records of matings is called . Genetics and Molecul ar Biology (), Ad vanced Genetics (), Genetic Material () and Gene Regulation ().
