This paper deals with genetics in the widest sense from the molecular and cellular to the applied and evolutionary. Both prokaryote and eukaryote genetics are discussed with respect to DNA replication, hereditary, gene expression and control, and the role of mutations at both the DNA and chromosomal levels. The paper provides a pathway from basic research in molecular genetics to clinical applications in health and disease.

The paper is seen as being of importance to students of biology, irrespective of whether their interests are in metabolic and cellular processes, plant/animal genetic improvement, or ecological and evolutionary. This paper is required for the Molecular and Cellular Biology major.
