Genetics is the study of all the traits and features that are passed from parents to children, from eye color to genetic disorders. Geneticists look at these patterns and use them as to decode and understand the world around us. Geneticists have helped farmers develop better seeds, produce new treatments for certain health conditions, and even create new dog breeds. Geneticists' work is vital to so many different fields, and this book introduces readers to the exciting, cutting-edge STEM career they can have as a geneticist.
