Basic Concepts in Genetics

Genetics is the basis of biology. It is also the basis of cognition, and the entire human enterprise. A closer look at some of the basics of genetics can be useful for many readers who may have been waylaid in university by politically correct social science dogmas such as "the blank slate."

First of all, just what is a gene , anyway? The answer is not as simple as you might think, even if you took genetics in school.

Next, a more general look at molecular biology. Understanding the nature of information flow in genetics is important, but it seems to be changing by the day.

You may be curious about how genes are sequenced. This short post gives a brief introduction. Or better yet, follow the links for some educational videos on modern gene sequencing and other bio-lab magic tricks.
