Early 20th century: from German Gen, from Pangen, a supposed ultimate unit of heredity (from Greek pan- 'all' + genos 'race, kind, offspring').
The word gene is from German Gen, from Pangen (from Greek pan- ‘all’ and genos ‘race, kind, offspring’), a supposed ultimate unit of heredity. Genetic (mid 19th century) started out meaning ‘arising from a common origin’: this is from genesis (Old English) ‘creation’, on the pattern of pairs such as antithesis and antithetic.
