Genetics (from Ancient Greek ????????? genetikos, ""genitive"" and that from ??????? genesis, ""origin""), a discipline of biology, is the science of genes, heredity, and variation in living organisms. The fact that living things inherit traits from their parents has been used since prehistoric times to improve crop plants and animals through selective breeding. However, the modern science of genetics, which seeks to understand the process of inheritance, only began with the work of Gregor Mendel in the mid-19th century.
