Gene, Genus, Genea, GeneeSpeaking of genetic studies the etymology of the word "gene" can be quite revealing. In my book Sun Language Theory Proven! I had shown how Turkish was ancestral to world's many languages, if not all, and that Indo_European languages derive from Turkish / Sumerian Turkish.
The word gene comes from Ancient Greek γενεά (genea) says Wiktionary:
"From German Gen, from Ancient Greek γενεά (geneá, “generation, descent”), from the aorist infinitive of γίγνομαι (gígnomai, “I come into being”). Coined by the Danish biologist Wilhelm Ludvig Johannsen in a German-language publication."
Greek word means: birth, race, descent, generation, offspring. Latin genus have similar meaning and sound.
Cool, but which word the ancient Greek "genea", "genee" comes from? What is the relationshio of the Greek word "Genea" with the Latin word "genus" ?
The answer is very easy using Sumerian Turkish and common Turkish.
Uğ= People, kinship, lineage, descent,
Excerpt from PART II: Incontrovertible proof: Water, Father, and Mother: Indo-European Languages derive from Turkish.
"English word "kin" derives from Turkish word "kan" meaning blood. In Turkish, "kin" means hate, conceptually related to "kan".
Kagan / Khan / Han the word for highest ruler is also related. English / German words "King" and "Konig" probably derive from these stems: Kan+Ug (blood plus people/lineage).
Moreover "kan" is formed through Uğ+An= Kinship+Sky as the Sumerian word AN means sky. Uğan > Ğan > Gan > Kan
"Gan" also means "bear child" in Sumerian, perfectly in line with "Ugan" above."
For more of the derivation of Konig, King please see the article.
So Greek "genea" comes from Turkish "uğan". Uğan or Ağan > Gana (Gene) very similar to modern Turkish word for blood "kan". The additional vowel "a" in in "gene+a" comes from adding "ağ" a derivative of "uğ".
Egyptian word for life Ankh, Greek Genea, English gene, Turkish Kan, Sumerian sky god Anu(ğ)

Egyptian Ankh comes from Anuğ. Sumerian sky god was An whose other form was Anu which derives from An+uğ > Anuğ > Anu.
Comparing Egyptian Anuğ and Uğan the Turkish word that gave way to genea we see a simple metathesis, change of order of slyllables. Hence Egyptian Ankh, Greek genea, Latin Genus, Sumerian sky god Anu derive from the same Turkish words Uğ and An.
Latin genus is formed through adding "us" Indo-European ending. Hence Uğ+An+us > Genus.
Moreover An+us > -anos. And -anos is a common Greek ending from Turkey / Anatolia notes Beekes.
