The unit of heredity that is transferred from a parent to offspring and is held to determine some characteristic of the offspring, is called Gene
I have transferred many good but also some problematic genes to my children. Now there is a new generation developing, and Maja´s genes come from those persons on these photos.
First and foremost her own parents Tor Marius and Rikke Arnedatter.
However, on her one year birthday we shot a photo of the grandparents too. Documenting who is responsible for genes.
From left: Tor (Bestefar), Tullen (mormor), Maja (the recipient), Edel (farmor) and Arne (Bestefar). There is no way back. You are a result of all this distinct sequence of nucleotides forming part of a chromosome. Now it is up to her environment to shape the remaining part of Maja´s personality.
