Quiz on Genetics and Plant Breeding

The process of transmission of characters from one generation to another is known as heredity or inheritance. The heredity and variations play an important role in the formation of new species. The biological science which deals with the mechanism of heredity and cause of variations of ling beings is known as genetics.
