Founder of Physics
Successes and Struggles in his life.
He was recognized as a gifted child and sent to a boarding school. Mendel could not afford this schooling.
Mendel finished his degree in 1853.
Although Mendel could not pass the very tough teaching exams. He took and failed it over four times.
Long Stem had the stem length of 787 while Short stem was 277.
The pod color green was 428 while yellow was 152.
Seed Shape for round was 5,474 and angular was 1850
This shows that all pea plants were different, so he could definitely use them to investigate heredity.
Scientist didn't understand how his experiments with pea plants had anything to do with heredity till after Mendel's death
Definition:Gene that will overpower another gene
Example: Brown Hair
Definition:Gene that gets covered up by a dominant gene
Examples: No freckles
Definition: Gene that is neither dominant nor recessive
Example: Chicken that has white and black ones, you get one with both white and black
When it was all rediscovered later on, scientists now say his discovery fathered genetics. All the research scientist have done recently was built off of Mendel's search.
