Transmission Genetics

Reference work entry

Transmission genetics is actually a misnomer because all genetics deals with inherited (transmitted) properties of organisms and in case there is no transmission there is no genetics. The term has been used to identify those aspects of genetics that deal only with the transmission of genes and chromosomes from parents to offspring involving also the study of segregation, recombination, mutation and other genetic phenomena without the use of biochemical and molecular analyses. It is used in the same sense as classical or Mendelian genetics.  molecular genetics,  reversed genetics
