Founder of phsyics
Gregor Mendel was a scientist that helped discover heredity by using pea plants. His theory wasn't accepted till later on.
Some successes where that he got accepted into the university of Olomouc, and he studied physics with Christian Doppler in Vienna
Some struggles were that he couldn't pass exams no matter what, and his family were poor farmers.
- He used pea plants because using apple trees would have taken too long
- He found you can combine 2 different types of plants to create a "hybrid"
- Seed shape
- Pod color
- Stem Length
Definition: Gene that will overpower another gene
Example: The yellow gene is dominant over the green gene.
Definition: Gene that gets covered up by a dominant gene
Example: The green gene didn't show because it is recessive.
Definition: Gene is neither dominant or recessive (both would show up)
Example: When you combine a white and black feathered chicken you have one that is both white and black feathered.
