Despite the content of his theories (which are by and large rejected, in detail, by modern standards) Goldschmidt played an important role in the history of twentieth century genetics. Our understanding of, and approach to, genetic processes today bears the mark of the kinds of questions which Goldschmidt persisted in asking, often irreverently, throughout his entire career. Goldschmidt's studies in heredity preceded, and continued well after, the development of the chromosome theory of heredity as enunciated by the Morgan school (1910-1930).

Goldschmidt's studies in heredity preceded, and continued well after, the development of the chromosome theory of heredity as enunciated by the Morgan school (1910-1930). The chromosome theory was a morphological concept of heredity. It was concerned with the structure of the germ plasm, the relation of Mendelian factors, or genes as they came to be called, to morphological units called chromosomes, in the cell nucleus.
