I will address how the study of genetics has changed in the era of genomic science. During the second half of the twentieth century genetic research focused on molecular mechanisms and was quite distant from Fisher’s interests. Whole genome sequencing has led to the increasing reintegration of this gene-based view with population genetics, and also with the requirement for statistical methodology, the two subjects that Fisher pioneered a century ago.
