What Is Genetics?
Genetics is a term that refers to the study of genes and their role in inheritance – the way certain traits are passed down from one generation to another.
Genomics is the study of all of a person’s genetic material, the interactions of that genetic material, the interactions of that genetic material with the environment, and the subsequent phenotypic changes.
Genetics uses information from one or two genes to explain a disease or condition, whereas genomics examines all of the genetic information to determine biological markers predisposing an individual to disease.
