The video collection of JoVE Science Education database series focuses on genetics, the study of how genes build traits and how they are passed down from generation to generation. The collection is divided into five modules covering broad subdisciplines: genetic analysis, genetics and disease, gene expression, epigenetics, and genetic engineering. These videos briefly overview important discoveries and basic concepts of each field, introduce key questions being asked by geneticists today, and discuss common tools and experimental approaches used to study and manipulate genes.
