Explaining Cytogenetics, Genetics, and Genomics. image

Wrapping up this HealthTree University series on the basics of genetics and cancer biology, we asked top doctors what the differences is between genetics, genomics, and cytogenetics as well as what a pathway is. You can watch the entire course at

17.09    What is the definition of cytogenetics?


17.1    What is the difference between genomics vs genetics?


17.11    What is a pathway? Can you give an example of a pathway?
