Why is the word genes or pants plural?

The word "genes" applied to biological DNA, is plural. (adjectives use the singlular, e.g. "gene therapy") "Blue jeans" (pants) is a "paired plural" noun such as "pliers" or "scissors", with almost no use of the singular. "Jean material" is probably the exception. The term "blue jeans" for denim pants originated in the "Gold Rush" period of 1850-55.
