Cells and Genetics

How does a scientist go about Predicting the Inheritance of Traits with Genes? In other words, experts in the field of Basic Science are beginning to know who we are before we are born due to the knowledge involving DNA and Genetics. In the Sciences department, Cells and Genetics offer a solid foundation starting with Cell Introduction and offering essential information about living things before they even exist! At the base of all plants and animals are tiny cells and genes. Cells and Genetics decodes the mystery of how all the cells come together to form a living form made of cells.
