is the study of heredity, how biological information
is stored in genes, how
genes interact with one another and their
environment to shape
the organism, and how genes change over time through the processes of mutation, drift, and selection (both natural and sexual).
the behavior of genes is fundamental to understanding biological
systems, how they function, malfunction and evolve.
you will cover the basics -- how genes came to be understood,
how they change
through mutation; how the information they encode
