The word genetics, coined by William Bateson, is derived from the Latin word genesis, which means birth. Genetics is the study of heredity and variation. Heredity refers to the transmission of genetic information, more precisely genes, from parents to offspring. This PDF Principles of Genetics and Cytogenetics covers the following topics related to Genetics : Inrtoduction, Earlier Concepts of Heredity, Cytology, Chromosome Morphology, Molecular Structure of Chromosome, Special Types of Chromosomes, Cell Division, Sexual Reproduction, Mendelian Genetics, Gene Action, Principles of Dominance, Lethal Genes, Epistasis / Gene Interaction, Multiple Alleles, Qualitative and Quantitative Characters, Polygenic Inheritance, Linkage, Crossing Over, Genetic and Physical Map, Sex Determination, Sex Determination in Humanbeings, Mutation, Chromosomal Aberrations, the Structure of Dna, Dna Replication, Rna as Genetic Material, the Genetic Code, Central Dogma of Molecular Biology, Transcription and Translation, Regulation of Gene Expression, Fine Structure of Genes, etc.

The objective of this note is have a greater awareness and appreciation of classical and molecular genetics with emphasis on genetic material and its formation, transmission, function and organization. Topics covered includes: historical perspective of genetics, inheritance patterns and the chromosomal basis of heredity, sex chromosomes in sex determination and sexual dimorphism, cells reproduce through DNA and nucleic acids, DNA transcribes into RNA that ultimately translates into protein, prokaryotic and eukaryotic genes, genetic basis of cancer and how it relates to the cell cycle.

Medical genetics involves the application of genetic principles in the practice of medicine. Medical genetics encompasses diagnosis and treatment of genetic diseases, study of inheritance of diseases in families, mapping of disease genes to their chromosome locations, study of the molecular genetics and pathogenesis of inherited disorders, provision of genetic counseling for families, and recently, investigations of methods for gene therapy. Topics covered includes: Mendelian Genetics, Non-Mendelian Genetics, Clinical Cytogenetics, Dysmorphology, Genetic Counseling, Prenatal Diagnosis, Clinical DNA Diagnosis, Cancer Genetics, Problem Solving in Genetics, Legal and Ethical Issues in Human Genetics.
