(p.130) 12 Emerging Genetics

Jan Sapp

Oxford University Press

The field of genetics was extraordinarily successful and rose to an authoritative position by the 1930s. To understand the relationship between genetics and other disciplines, this chapter first outlines the state of the field of heredity in the first decades of the last century. It shows that there were several distinct conceptions of heredity within several specialties. It then examines the rhetoric between specialties and traces the course that led genetics in the United States to a central position in biology.
