It is the study of genetic, heredity and genes variations in living being. The field goals to understand the function and process of trait inheritance, comprising topics such as gene behaviour, gene distribution, and molecular structure of genes. Experts in the field are involved with the study of the genetic causes behind many genetic anomalies, genetic variations and hereditary conditions of living organisms.
