about genesSince the primeval times it has been observed that living organisms can pass down attributes to their offspring who can then pass down to their own children and so on The author begins his book with Gregor Johann Mendel a scientist who observed the nature of genes in pea plants by isolating them to discover the transmissible characteristics in pea plants Thomas Hunt Morgan who in the early 20th century observed a study on fruit flies to state the real location of genes in a living organism s cell The author has mathematically noted down each milestone in genetic science in this book rather descriptively But with all this the author ensures that his readers do not lose their focus from the fact that study of genes is not any just a progressive or evolutionary aspect in science and medicines rather it is a study and observation about how an individual is insufficiently deciphering the technological advancement in the science of genetics as well as the study of
