Genetics is the study of genes and DNA and chromosomes and together they determine who you are. Who are you? Are you a human or a centipede? Are you monkey or an eagle? This is determined by the genes or the genetic makeup of an organism. Genetics has gained significance and momentum as an academic subject of study. The human genome has been fully sequenced and all the genetic codes have been identfied, both their structure and function. We are in an era where you can know your ancestry, which is your past and your future vulnerbility to diseases and even a probable cause of death by using genetics.
In the future, it is anticipated that genetics will revolutionize medicine and lead to the development and delivery of personalized medicine, a customised plan of treatment and preventive measures based on your genetic makeup.
Genetics has also gained significance with gene therapy and other interesting inventions like cloning. There are also many similair controversial areas in genetics which may be considered unethical at present but 50 years from now it may be the norm.
