Have you ever seen identical twins? It is remarkable they look so much alike. The process of reproduction passes information from parent to offspring. There are two types of reproduction: asexual reproduction, which requires one parent and produces nearly identical offspring, and sexual reproduction, `which requires two parents and provides variety in a species. This variety may allow the species to adapt to changes in the environment and help the species survive. A species may change by passing on traits naturally or by techniques used and developed by science. Genetic information is passed on in a predictable manner. Explore now how reproduction passes on genetic information.
