Introductory notes on quantitative genetics posted we start our survey of quantitative genetics on tuesday it’s a field with a long history, and we’ll only scratch the surface, but when we finish out the course, you should understand the basics well enough that you can figure out anything else you need to know on your own. The topics include: structure and function of genes, chromosomes and genomes, biological variation resulting from recombination, mutation, and selection, population genetics, use of genetic methods to analyze protein function, gene regulation and inherited disease. The introductory article gives an overview of the methods of analysis of quantitative genetic variation in plants and argues for the application of a “systems quantitative genetics” approach to unravel genotype–phenotype relationships.

The breeding experiments of the monk gregor mendel in the mid‐1800s laid the groundwork for the science of genetics he published only two papers in his lifetime and died unheralded in 1884 the significance of his paper published in 1866 on inheritance in peas (which he grew in the monastery.
Introduction to genetics genetics is the study of how living things receive common traits from previous generations these traits are described by the genetic information carried by a molecule.
