This collection includes interviews and discussions on Yale's research in genetics, the branch of biology that studies heredity and variation in organisms. The Yale Genetics Department is a large, interdisciplinary group of faculty performing basic laboratory research and clinical research, and providing clinical care. Several laboratories are actively engaged in human genetics, cloning genes linked with disease, developing DNA probes and other diagnostic techniques, or studying the epidemiology of inherited disorders.
