ABSTRACT
As knowledge of the mechanisms of genetic action expands, this new information must be incorporated into the whole. The result is that old concepts are modified or deleted or new paradigms are created. The authors review advances in the understanding of traditional and nontraditional inheritance, including genomic imprinting and mitochondrial inheritance.
