Genetics vs Genomics: is there a difference?
“Genetics” and “genomics”: two words that get thrown around a lot in media coverage and in scientific circles. (I even spotted genetics on the side of a shampoo bottle once.) But what is the difference between these two terms? Aside from the letter ‘o’. Could you describe the difference in under a minute?
Luckily the Jackson Lab has stepped in to save the day. Dayana Krawchuck takes the stage in their ‘Minute to Understanding’ series to explain just how wildly different these two terms, and indeed fields of science, actually are. All in less than a minute!
