Second the study of culture is a prime example of critical thinking in the field, as cross-cultural research begs the question about whether our notions of truth and psychological principles are applicable to people beyond those whom were studied.

7.2 MENDEL'S GENETICS, LINKAGE, AND THE MOUSE 7.2.1 Historical overview By the time the chemical nature of the gene was uncovered, genetics was already a mature science. In fact, Mendel's formulation of the basic principles of heredity was not even dependent on an understanding of the fact that genes existed within chromosomes. Rather, the existence of genes was inferred solely from the expression in offspring of visible traits at predicted frequencies based on the traits present in the parental and grandparental generations. Today, of course, the field of genetics encompasses a broad spectrum of inquiry from molecular studies on gene regulation to analyses of allele frequencies in natural populations, with many subfields in between.
