Genetics What is the mechanism of heredity? What is the biochemical and molecular basis for the function of genes? What is the genetic basis of evolutionary change in natural populations?

Genetics DNA molecules encode the biological information fundamental to all life forms. Biological function emerges primarily from protein molecules. Complex biological systems emerge from the functioning of regulatory networks that specify the behavior of genes. All living forms are closely related. Genomes are modular, allowing rapid evolution. Genetic techniques permit dissection of biological complexity.

Four bases – G (guanine), A (adenine), T (thymine), and C (cytosine) are the nucleotide building block of DNA DNA is a double stranded helix composed of A-T and G-C complementary bases. Order of nucleotide sequences determines which proteins are synthesized, as well as when and where the synthesis occurs. Information in DNA molecule generates
