Class 12 Biology Molecular Basis of Inheritance Search for the Genetic Material

Search for the Genetic Material

The study of Genetics started with Gregor Mendel who introduced ‘factors’ for inheritance. Boveri-Sutton theory later gave the chromosomal theory of inheritance.

The concept of inheritance was understood at the level of chromosomes further when Morgan came up with the concept of linkage & recombination at chromosomal level.

It was taken a step forward in 1926 when experiments were being performed to understand Inheritance at a molecular level.

The search was for the molecule which acts as a genetic material.
