OLogy: A Nature and Nurture Walk in Mendel Park

Solve genetic riddles as you wind your way through the star-studded park.

Thousands of different traits make you who you are. Some traits, such as eye color, are determined mostly or entirely by genes. These kinds of traits are said to be due to nature.

Most traits, however, develop through a combination of nature (your genes) and nurture (everything in your life–where you live, the people you know, and even just luck).

Scientists all agree that both  nature and nurture  play important roles in who you are.
