(Variation and inheritance) basic unit of genetic material that is inherited from our parents. A gene is a section of DNA which controls part of a cell's chemistry - particularly protein production

Gene

A gene is a discrete segment of the DNA molecule, located at a specific site (its locus) on a specific chromosome pair. Two copies of each gene exist in each nucleated diploid cell in an animal. Only one gene of each pair is randomly transmitted to the offspring through the gamete. The unique nucleotide sequence of each gene determines its specifi...

Gene

A gene is the molecular unit of heredity of a living organism. It is used extensively by the scientific community as a name given to some stretches of deoxyribonucleic acids (DNA) and ribonucleic acids (RNA) that code for a polypeptide or for an RNA chain that has a function in the organism. Living beings depend on genes, as they specify all prote...

Gene

a unit of heredity. Eye color is a particularly simple system. There are blue eye genes and brown eye genes and one's eyes are brown if one of the two eye color genes is a brown one and blue if blue genes are inherited from both parents. Each gene is a segment of DNA and is often controlled by other genes. In the case of glucose absorption, the......

Gene

(genes) Coded messages that tell cells how to behave. They control growth and development of the body. Genes are made of DNA and grouped together to form chromosomes. Different human chromosomes have different numbers of genes - most have between 1 to 2 thousand genes per chromosome.

gene

(Gk: genea=race) a unit of the material of inheritance, the basic unit of heredity. Numbers of genes occur on each chromosome in the cell nucleus. Each gene controls one or more traits in an organism, and the way they are inherited.

gene

(jēn) the biologic unit of heredity; self-reproducing, transmitted from parent to progeny, and located at a specific position in the genome. Genes make up segments of the complex DNA molecules that control cell reproduction and function. There are thousands of genes in the chromosomes of each cell nucleus; they play an i...
