Metagenetics is a field of genetics concerned with the inheritance of the metatype and its component meta traits in the Human species.

Metatype inheritanceEdit

For parents of mixed metatype there is a roughly equal chance, that their child will inherit either parent's metatype.[1] Parents of the same metatype will usually have only children of their own metatype. Though with rare genetic combinations it is possible for them to have either a human child or child of a metatype different from their own.[2]
