Gregor Mendel Poster

Founder of Modern Genitics

Description 👳

Mendel started off in a poor family, and is now a well-known scientist for his study in how chromosomes are passed down through heredity.

Early life👶

Successes

1.Was recognized as a gifted child

2.Was accepted into the university of Olomouc

Struggles

1.Was born into a very poor family

2.His father was injured on the farm

Experimental design🔱

Tried to figure out how many different forms of pea plants would result in breeding two pea plants together. Was curious about how a green pea could result from its two yellow parent pea plants.

Data🔢

1.Round- 5,474--Angular-1,850

2. Green- 428-- Yellow- 152

3. Long-787-- Short-277

This data means that there are more dominant genes that recessive genes.

Reactions😱

Was named the father of genetics. His work wasn't recognized until at least 40 years after his death. It was a little too late to react because he was dead by then. Once they did react the referred to the findings as Mendel’s laws.

Foundation🏠

He Introduced a new study about how genetics are inherited.

Vocabulary🔠

Example: The yellow peas in Gregor Mendel’s experiment were the dominant genes.


Recessive

Definition: Gene that gets covered up by a dominant gene.

Example:The green peas in Mendel’s experiment.


CoDominant

Definition: Gene that is neither dominant nor recessive.

Example: ABO blood types.
