Genomes for Individual Ability (Features)
The study of heredity has a long tradition. In the time of the Greeks, Hippocrates described the inherited head shape of the Macrocephalics. It was known for millennia that some traits were passed from generation to generation. The study of genetics usually begins with Mendel and his study of pea plants and the inheritance of a few known characteristics. But the field of genetics exploded in the twentieth century with the rise of molecular biology, which became big science with the genome project and the mapping of human genome. Genetics at the molecular level has changed the study of inheritance.
