The foundation of genetics is still planted in Gregor Johann Mendel’s 19th-century experiments with peas. Through those experiments, our fundamental rules of genetic heredity were established.
But one researcher at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences is contributing to work that may challenge some of the long-held rules of heredity.
Alison Harrill, assistant professor at the UAMS Fay W. Boozman College of Public Health, has contributed data to a study that focuses on the genes that ignore the usual laws of heredity.
