DNA, RNA the basic building block of the human body. The Genetic components change from person to person via heredity basically like you can determine the relation between father and son and so on by checking the similarity between their DNA.
The Altering of genes is called mutation and study of forced mutation. It was pretty famous in early 20th-century before Nazis were thought to be using Eugenics for their own beliefs.

What is genetic components ?

Eugenics is the study of methods of improving genetic qualities by selective breeding (especially as applied to human mating.
In Huxley's day eugenics happened only by government mandate; now it will take government mandate - a ban on genetic tinkering - to prevent it.
Eugenics, as a modern concept, was originally developed by Francis Galton. It has roots in France, Germany, Great Britain and the United States in the 1860s-1870s. Galton had read his cousin Charles Darwin's theory of evolution, which sought to explain the development of plant and animal species, and desired to apply it to humans. Galton believed that desirable traits were hereditary based on biographical studies. In 1883, one year after Darwin's death, Galton gave his research a name: "eugenics". Throughout its recent history, eugenics remains a controversial concept.
As a social movement, eugenics reached its greatest popularity in the early decades of the 20th century. At this point in time, eugenics was practiced around the world and was promoted by governments, and influential individuals and institutions.
Many countries enacted various eugenics policies and programmes, including: genetic screening, birth control, promoting differential birth rates, marriage restrictions, segregation (both racial segregation and segregation of the mentally ill from the rest of the population) , compulsory sterilization, forced abortions or forced pregnancies, and genocide.
Most of these policies were later regarded as coercive or restrictive, and now few jurisdictions implement policies that are explicitly labelled as eugenic or unequivocally eugenic in substance.

Eugenics is the change in human genetic component.
