GENETICS AND INHERITANCE 2 Genetics and Inheritance Genetics and DNA are the building blocks for the diversity of all living species in the universe. Within every living creature, genetic inheritance plays the largest role in contributing factors to their offspring as physical and mental traits that are passed on from generation to generation are determined. The chromosomes that contain transferable genes are inherited to a species’ offspring through reproduction. Genetics and DNA are important to understand when it pertains to transferring genetics because it can contain clues and indicators for genetic disorders and how they become present in humans and individual bloodlines. Genetic disorders are the topic of thorough research, specifically researched at the National Human Genome Institute. Inheritance of certain genetics and DNA can cause various disorders that can be genetically passed on between generations. Some examples include Breast Cancer, Huntington’s Disease, and Sickle Cell Disease. In this paper, we will focus on Sickle Cell Disease, it’s various

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
