Inheritance

  • Definition: The transmission of information in the form of genes from parents to offspring. The only characteristics that can be passed on by inheritance are those encoded in the DNA present in gametes; traits acquired during the lifetime of the parent, such as muscle development in athletes, cannot be passed on.
