    Genetics is a branch of biology that studies heredity and how certain characteristics or traits are passed from parents to offspring. The modern study of genetics began with the research of Gregor Mendel in the mid-1800s. His discoveries paved the way for today’s understanding of the role of genetics in human development and in the treatment of genetic disorders.
