The theoretical gestation of genetics spanned well over 2,000 years, from classical Greek thinkers like Hippocrates and Aristotle, all the way to the advent of cellular biology in the 19th Century and through to modern times.

Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) and Ribonucleic Acid (RNA) were formally named in the first part of the 20th Century, with the genetic coding mechanism finally cracked in 1965. The Human Genome Project (HGP) was begun by the US government in 1987, during which time a multitude of scientists and clinicians began employing the knowledge that had thus far been gleaned for their own particular uses. The Human Genome Project was
