Genetics and Molecular Biology
What is Genetics and Molecular Biology?
Genetics is the science of heredity. By understanding the mechanisms which govern the way genetic information is received and expressed by individual organisms during their life and also how it is passed onto succeeding generations, scientists are increasingly able to understand the biochemical processes of all living things.
Molecular Biology encompasses the molecular aspects of biochemistry, genetics and cell biology. It seeks to explain the relationships between the structure and function of biological molecules and how these relationships contribute to the operation and control of the biochemical process.
