rfv-sense: (biology, genetics) The genetic makeup of a specific individual or species. See: genes. Tagged by Dictabeard (talkcontribs), to be honest it looks ok to me, but three citations would be good. Mglovesfun (talk) 11:32, 4 February 2011 (UTC)

  • Yes, I can see people saying "I'm fat because of my genetics", meaning "... because of my genetic makeup". SemperBlotto 11:37, 4 February 2011 (UTC)
  • google books:"because of his genetics", this would seem to pass on that alone. BTW etymology is missing a step or two - it's not directly from Ancient Greek, I think it's via French and Latin. Mglovesfun (talk) 11:46, 4 February 2011 (UTC)
  • Cited, and loads more cites available. And thanks Ruakh. Mglovesfun (talk) 18:02, 4 February 2011 (UTC)
