Genetic Analysis


the complex of methods for studying the hereditary characteristics of organisms. Genetic analysis includes: (1) The hybridological method, which studies the laws of heredity and also the structure and behavior of genetic structures by means of special forms of crossbreeding. (2) The cytogenetic method, which developed at the junction of genetics and cytology. Its chief task is the establishment of a connection between the laws of inheritance and the structure and function of the chromosomes (composing cytological maps of chromosomes, genomic analysis, and so on). (3) The molecular-genetic method, which was developed in connection with new biochemical and physicochemical methods of analyzing genetic structures. The connection between the molecular structure of the genes and the proteins synthesized in accordance with information contained in them is studied by this method.
