Gregor Mendel

Founder of Genetics

About Gregor Mendel

He was a guy who wanted to go through school and become a scientist. In his life he made science experiment and became the first to know about genes. He was also know as the "Father of Modern Genetics

Guaranteed to be a smart guy!

Frequently asked questions about Gregory

How did the scientist feel about Mendel's work? They felt alright about his work because it helped them out on the experiment.

Early Years

Gregor Mendel was a poor kid, he was the first to discover about the genes. On his big test he failed, so he took it again and stilled failed the test. He also worked as a gardener and studied bees. He attended the gym in Opava

Experimental Design

Gregor Mendel invested about heredity using the pea plants plan and he learned about the hybrid plants by observing characteristics. He studied 7 traits that seemed to inherit independently of other traits.

The data that Gregory Mendel has figured out!!!

Round seeds are dominant, Yellow pods are recessive, long stems are dominant. The rounds seeds are more dominant than angular. Yellow pods are recessive and green pods a dominant. Long stems are dominant and short on are recessive. Studies showed that 1 out of 4 pea plants had purebred recessive alleles, 2 out of 4 were hybrid 1 out of 4 were purebred dominant.

Scientist thought about him.

His work was rejected by the scientist because they thought characteristics were passed to the next generation through blending inheritance.

Scientist foundation

It helped them out by giving them some information on where to start, so they didn’t have to start from the beginning.

Relating to two alleles of a gene pair in a hetero-zygote that are both fully expressed. When alleles for both white and red are present in a carnation, for example, the result is a pink carnation since both alleles are co-dominant.


Dominant traits are those that are expressed or seen when a heterozygous genotype is present. Heterozygous just means having two different alleles for a gene. One is usually dominant while one is recessive. Remember, recessive alleles are masked by dominant alleles.

A recessive gene is a gene that gets trumped by a dominant gene. For example, your mom's recessive gene for blue eyes was trumped by your dad's dominant gene for brown eyes. That's how you got stuck with brown eyes.
