Genomis and Genetics: What’s the difference?
Genome / Monday September 4th, 2017

Going deeper into the subject, I found several moments in which one spoke of genetics and others of genomics. What do I need to do: a genetic examination or genomic examination? After all, WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE? Genetics Genetics deals with heredity, that is, how individual traits are inherited through genes – on a small scale or molecular scale. The study is done by the investigation of genes, which is the fundamental unit of heredity. Each gene has a specific coding [nucleic acid sequence (DNA / RNA)] that will represent a well-defined function. It is because of him that his hair can be black and with curls, or have blue or brown eyes. Genomics Genomics deals with the study of all (or many) genes in a genome and their interactions with the environment. – wide or very large scale. Although it is related to genetics, they are different, since genetics deals with individual study of genes and what one takes from one generation to another.   Brief summary about what is genetics and genome. The following videos give a brief summary of what is genetic and genomic (left) and a brief history of the studies of genetics to genomics (right).  …
