What is Heredity?

Every organism whether an animal, human, plant or fish resembles its parents. This phenomenon of resemblance is called heredity. It is the passing down of certain characteristics or traits from a parent to its offspring through the genes. For example, your eyes may look like your mother’s eyes or your nose may look like your father’s nose. Heredity is related to genes and chromosomes. Each child gets half of its chromosomes from the mother and the other half from the father.
