Gregor Mendel was born on July 22, 1822 in Heinzendorf Austria. He was a poor farmer growing up. He then grew up and went to the university of Vienna. He went to school for teaching and failed his test 5 times. But he had top marks in math and science. He then went to the monastery in Brno, that is where he became well known.
How many different forms would result from the random fertilization of 2 kinds of pea plants. When he first started he only knew 2 things about genetics. He presented his findings in two lectures.
green-428 Yellow 152
Long-787 short 277
The Recessive is less dominate.
When he crossed plants that always produces yellow peas with plants that always had green peas, all the new plants had yellow seeds. The yellow was Dominate and the green was recessive. Dominate will always show over recessive.
Mendel brought the experiment “Pea Plants” here and he taught us about hybrid plants, Which led us to believe the same for humans. Of all the 8,023 peas he harvested and counted, 6,022 were yellow and the 2,001 were green.
