geneticsgénétique (fr.); Genetik (ger.)

  • The scientific study of inherited variation in living organisms, and of the cellular and molecular processes responsible for this; the branch of biology concerned with this. Also (with sing. or pl. concord): genetic characteristics or features (of an organism, species, disease, process, etc.). (OED 2011)

    The best title would, I think, be ‘The Quick Professorship of the study of Heredity’. No single word in common use quite gives this meaning […], and if it were desirable to coin one, ‘Genetics’ might do.

    The progress of genetics since the rediscovery of Mendel’s papers

    Mr. Bateson suggests the adoption of the term “genetics” to indicate the nature of our researches into the phenomena of heredity and variation, in other words the physiology of descent.

    Bateson, W. (1906). [Suggestion]. In: International Conference on Hybridisation and Plant-Breeding. Nature 74, 371-372: 371.


    the physiology of heredity and variation is a definite branch of science, and if we knew nothing of evolution that science would still exist. To avoid further periphrasis, then, let us say genetics.
