Description

Gregor Mendel was a scientist that grew up poor, but made strides in hybrid and heredity genetics.

Early Years

Gregor Mendel got to go to college and earned top marks, but his family was poor and he was bad at taking tests.

Experimental Design

Gregor Mendel was a scientist that grew up poor, but made strides in hybrid and heredity genetics.

Some facts are that seed shape had thousands in difference compared to the other parts having hundreds in difference of the plant in dominant over recessive genes, and dominant genes was almost three times more common recessive genes in all instances.

Data

Dominant genes are more common, Dominant genes in plants can still have recessive genes in other areas, and recessive genes were about ⅓ as common as dominant genes. Which means that Dominant genes were more common, but the plants were not always entirely dominant or recessive.

Reactions

There wasn’t much of a reaction and scientist didn't react much most of them did not understand his work.

Foundation

It founded the study of dominant genes and recessive genes in hybrids, also he used this to study heredity. For example when scientist remade his experiments and got the same results.


Vocabulary

Dominant

Definition: A gene that would overpower another gene

Example: I have brown eyes which are dominant.


Recessive

Definition:Gene that gets covered up by a dominant gene

Example: I have straight hair which is recessive.


CoDominant

Definition Gene that ain't dominant and ain’t recessive

Example: People having an AB blood type.
