What is biological inheritance?

    Biological inheritance is the process in which an offspring cell/organism becomes predisposed to characteristics of its parent.  Through this inheritance, evolution can take place as variations build up.  The study of biological inheritance is called genetics.

    Biological inheritance is the process in which a living organism produces another organism that shares its same traits. This process through subsequent generations results in specific variations and is the cornerstone for evolution. This is why you see certain traits carrying through generations of families, such as a beaked nose or red hair. Two methods of biological inheritance are genetic and epigenetic. Genetic inheritance involves DNA replication and cell division, and epigenetic can include DNA modifications such as gene silencing.
