Genus is the like the first name in Eastern cultures or the last name in Western cultures, with species being the less important first name.

Both genera and species should always be italicized in the case of electronic writing, with the exception that the rest of the work is italicized, in which case genera and species are specifically not italicized. In the case of hand written work, genera and species names should be underlined.

Example- Cannabis sativa.

Cannabis is the genus, and sativa is the specific member of the genus Cannabis, aka species name.
