Genetics and breeding

Genetics is the study of genes, heredity, and genetic variation in living organisms. Breeding is the reproduction that is producing of offspring, usually animals or plants: Breeding in the wild, the natural process of reproduction in the animal kingdom. Animal husbandry, through selected specimens such as dogs, horses, and rabbits. Plant breeding, through selected specimens such as trees.
