Welcome to JoVE Science Education, the revolutionary video database dedicated to teaching laboratory fundamentals through simple, easy to understand video demonstrations.
The physical and behavioral traits of all living organisms are shaped by the genetic information that they inherit from their parents. The eighth collection in the JoVE Science Education database series focuses on genetics, the study of how genes build traits and how they are passed down from generation to generation. The collection is divided into five modules covering broad subdisciplines: genetic analysis, genetics and disease, gene expression, epigenetics, and genetic engineering. These videos briefly overview important discoveries and basic concepts of each field, introduce key questions being asked by geneticists today, and discuss common tools and experimental approaches used to study and manipulate genes.
