Genetics is the study of inheritance, and geneticists seek to explain the mechanisms and outcomes of the transmission of genetic material between individuals and populations. Research interests in genetics by Department of Biology faculty are broad, and range from understanding basic mechanisms of chromosomal stability and transmission, to understanding the causes and consequences of DNA sequence differences within and among populations and species.
