Variability may be introduced in an observed phenotype by a range of elements. Inherited genetic factors, as well as environmental and behavioral conditions, may affect the phenotype. The blend of all these interactions gives rise to the unique being every living creature is. Experimental genetics has traditionally been, and still is, a very powerful tool for dissecting the genetic factors out of the blend that results in the observed phenotype complexity.
