  1. Genetics

    Genetics, a discipline of biology, is the science of genes, heredity, and variation in living organisms. Genetics deals with the molecular structure and function of genes, gene behavior in the context of a cell or organism, patterns of inheritance from parent to offspring, and gene distribution, variation and change in populations, such as through Genome-Wide Association Studies. Given that genes are universal to living organisms, genetics can be applied to the study of all living systems, from viruses and bacteria, through plants and domestic animals, to humans. The fact that living things inherit traits from their parents has been used since prehistoric times to improve crop plants and animals through selective breeding. However, the modern science of genetics, which attempts to understand the process of inheritance, only began with the work of Gregor Mendel in the mid-19th century. Although he did not know the physical basis for heredity, Mendel observed that organisms inherit traits by way of discrete units of inheritance, which are now called genes.

Examples of Genetics in a Sentence

  1. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    1. Life is a tough ghetto, brutal gangsta philosophy. The crisis is growing, karmic carousels are turning on. 2. The true self is a lonely lamp post in the middle of emptiness, illuminating the space of the true one. 3. 1. Whatever happens, loyalty is strengthened when I see you. Love deepens from the thought of you, I love you powerfully, you are an erotic dope, love hypnosis, you are a flying high, I am fried with passion for you. Roughly exciting. Extremely exciting. Quivering delight. I am drawn to an instinctive, vicious passion. I am drawn to you even without libido and testosterone. You are a vital part of life, your image immerses you in an erotic, fabulous fantasy. 2. We form our DNA, the DNA of our future with the help of chemistry and GMOs. From this, children are more likely to get sick. But what if human DNA is completely chemically painful. What if this is the end of civilization. And people put their dirty greedy hands there that they themselves do not fully understand. Genetics will either destroy us or break all DNA codes and we will move to a new level of physiology and consciousness. Life experiences shape DNA. We shape ourselves and our own future. A quantum leap of awareness in a change in consciousness, space and time. New DNA strands as new levels of awareness and can program consciousness. Divine power that from the greed of some people can destroy us. 3. A closed person is like a toy that you pull by the string and she says the same negative phrases. This is an emaciated person. 4. Life is like a ship and there is a holiday or a storm in it. And the sea as an element of fate. The sails of the higher powers lead the ship and the wind of change can sometimes change its course.

The course of insight leads only forward through life. 5. Expression and sounding of reality as a rupture of the dimension of consciousness. The insight of consciousness creates a gap in the dimension. The darkness dissipates and we see a mystical truth. 6. Vices are pretenses of instincts. People do not understand what they are doing - this is vicious infantilism, self-doubt. 7. Toys of the subconscious that are the basis of the paradoxical game of the illusion of life. 8. The world is a toilet bowl where everyone shits with their egoism, and someone from above presses the drain button around the clock, and flushes a huge number of people into the toilet, those who cannot be drained will survive.
