Genetics 101

by Aaron Hoey 0

It is almost inevitable when discussing human differences, especially when it comes to body composition and sports performance that the topic of genetics will arise. Unfortunately though, genetic variation is a poorly understood concept. As with anything, a more thorough understanding assists with dispelling misconceptions, thus allowing a better standard of knowledge to proliferate. This can help each individual to focus his or her energy and attention

It is almost inevitable when discussing human differences, especially when it comes to body composition and sports performance that the topic of genetics will arise. Unfortunately though, genetic variation is a poorly understood concept. As with anything, a more thorough understanding assists with dispelling misconceptions, thus allowing a better standard of knowledge to proliferate. This can help each individual to focus his or her energy and attention where it is required in order to achieve the desired outcome. This article will focus primarily on the genetic difference in organisms that can lead to such drastic variance in any outcome. A future article will focus more so on how environmental factors can impact on said outcomes.
