no need to spam with your question. We have our lives as well and we are not sitting here and checking new posts every 20 minutes!

The inherited material is DNA. In the case of humans and other animals it is in the form of linear strings forming chromosomes.
No, one gene does not give all the traits.

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

but RNA is also a inherited material
in ritroviruses , the information is transferred from RNA to DNA
