Genes: Genes are the specific parts of chromosomes or DeoxyriboNucleic Acid (DNA) segments which determine the hereditary characteristics. They are responsible for transmission of traits from parents to offspring.
Traits: The alternative forms of a character are called “traits”. The inheritable characteristics or traits may be morphological, anatomical, physiological or reproductive. Tallness and dwarfness are the traits of character height. Traits can be acquired during the course of life or inherited from parents.
