This proposal is the basis of the chromosome theory of inheritance, which states that inherited traits are controlled by genes residing on chromosomes faithfully transmitted through gametes, maintaining genetic continuity from generation to generation. Geneticists encountered many different examples of inherited traits between 1910 and about 1940, allowing them to test the theory over and over. Patterns of inheritance sometimes varied from the simple examples described by Mendel, but the chromosome theory of inheritance could always be applied.

Some of the model organisms employed in genetic research since the early part of the twentieth century are now used in combination with recombinant DNA technology and genomics to study human diseases. ■ Genetic technology is developing faster than the policies, laws, and conventions that govern its use. Introduction to Genetics F 2 1 INT RO D UCTION TO GEN ETICS ollowing months of heated debate in 1998, the Icelandic Parliament passed a law granting deCODE Genetics, a biotechnology company with headquarters in Iceland, a license to create and operate a database containing detailed information drawn from medical histories of all of Iceland’s 270,000 residents.

He applied quantitative data analysis to his results and showed that traits are passed from parents to offspring in predictable ways. He further concluded that each trait in the plant is controlled by a pair of genes and that during gamete formation (the formation of egg cells and sperm) members of a gene pair separate from each other. His work was published in 1866 but was largely unknown until it was partially duplicated and cited in papers by Carl Correns and others around 1900. Having been confirmed by others, Mendel’s findings became recognized as explaining the transmission of traits in pea plants and all other higher organisms.
