Genetics is easier to understand than you might think. Here you will find accurate information on this powerful field of biological study, presented in clear language for everyone to understand and enjoy.
What exactly is life and how we know if we ever spotted an alien? NASA has answers!
Biologists teach that all living things on earth are related. Is there any solid evidence to back this claim? Join us as we explore the facts!
Ever get confused about the difference between DNA, genes, and Chromosomes? If so, don't worry. We straighten it all out here!
The RNA World Hypothesis is the idea that before living cells, proteins, and the genetic code ever existed, chains of RNA were replicating and evolving on the early Earth.
Point mutations are the simplest natural mechanisms known to increase the genetic information of a population.
Gene Duplications dramatically lengthen the genetic code of an individual. As point mutations add up in the duplicated region across generations, entirely new genes with new functions can evolve.
Learn how DNA creates a living creature! Here you will be introduced to the genetic code, DNA transcription and translation, and the importance of proteins in the chemistry of life.
You hear about genes all the time in the news and in the movies, but what exactly is a gene? Here we explain what they are and even go over how genetically modified organism are being produced.
Natural Selection is one of the main concepts found within the theory of evolution. See how it works!
