Roles and responsibilities

Genetics is the study of how certain characteristics are passed on from parent to offspring. As a geneticist you will study the heredity of genes and how they cause variations in either plant or animal organisms.

Typically a geneticist analyses data from experiments or population observations to interpret the inheritance of traits in relation to disease.

A geneticist can be a physician who has specialised training in genetics; a genetic counsellor; a plant or animal breeder; or a researcher in medicine, ecology, pharmacology and various other specialities.
