Gregor Mendel, botanist, teacher, and Augustinian prelate, the first person to lay the mathematical foundation of the science of genetics, in what came to be called Mendelism. His monumental achievements were not well known during his lifetime. He gained renown when his work was rediscovered decades after his death.

The Gene: An Intimate History is an epic story of how we have come to understand some of the fundamental building blocks of life on earth. From Mendel growing his peas via Darwin and the origin of species, eugenics and the Nazis, Crick and Watson discovering the double helix structure of DNA to the tantalising prospects of genome enhancement Cited by: Get this from a library.

Gregor Mendel and the discovery of the gene. [John Bankston] -- A biography of the nineteenth-century Austrian monk who discovered the laws of genetics. Gregor Mendel is best known for his work with his pea plants in the abbey gardens.

He spent about seven years planting, breeding and cultivating pea plants in an experimental part of the abbey garden that was started by the previous abbot. Through meticulous record-keeping, Mendel's experiments with pea plants became the basis for modern : Heather Scoville.

Gregor Mendel, known as the "father of modern genetics," was born in Austria in A monk, Mendel discovered the basic principles of heredity through experiments in his monastery's : Gregor Johann Mendel is known as the father of modern genetics. He used cross-breeding to develop different kinds of peas.

This allowed him to make predictions about the outcomes. These are now called Mendel's Laws of Heredity. They explain how traits are passed from generation to generation.

Mendel also discovered dominant and recessive genes. Mendel had discovered the basic unit of heredity, had proved there must be such a unit, and finally a Danish botanist, Wilhelm Johannsen, gave it a name: “gene,” he suggested — “a very Author: James Gleick. Thus any good historical introduction to the subject is helpful in clearing away the fog.

Simon Mawer is the author of such a book - "Gregor Mendel: Planting the Seeds of Genetics." This is a short, well-illustrated, telling of the history of genetics, appropriately centered on /5(3).

The history of genetics dates from the classical era with contributions by Pythagoras, Hippocrates, Aristotle, Epicurus, and genetics began with the work of the Augustinian friar Gregor Johann Mendel. His work on pea plants, published inestablished the theory of Mendelian inheritance.

The year marked the "rediscovery of Mendel" by Hugo de Vries, Carl Correns and. Gregor Johann Mendel (Heinzendorf, Austria, 20 July – Brünn, Austro-Hungary, 6 January ) was an Austrian monk and botanist.

He founded genetics by his work cross-breeding pea discovered dominant and recessive characters from the crosses he performed on the plants in his he learnt is known today as Mendelian mater: University of Vienna.

Genetics is a new science – you can plausibly date it from the rediscovery around of Gregor Mendel’s then practically unknown paper on the breeding of peas, and the naming of the.

Mendel abandoned his experiments in the s and turned his attentions to running his monastery. When he died inhe was remembered as a puttering monk with a skill for breeding plants. It was only some 15 years after his death that scientists realized that Mendel had revealed the answer to one of life's greatest mysteries.

One of these principles is now called Mendel's law of segregation, which states that allele pairs separate or segregate during gamete formation, and randomly unite at : Regina Bailey.

Gregor Mendel conducted the first serious study of heredity. His findings, his meth ods, and his discoveries laid the foundation for the field of genetics and the study of genes and heredity. Finally, Mendel’s discovery, itself, provided great insights into the role of inherited traits and into the ways those traits are passed form generation.

Gregor Mendel is the father of genetics. • Founded the science of genetics. • Identified many of the rules of heredity. These rules determine how traits are passed through generations of living things. • Saw that living things pass traits to the next generation by something that remains unchanged in successive generations of an organism.

The illustrations in this book are absolutely gorgeous and compliment the story of Gregor Mendel's work perfectly. The differences in the peas is shown to clearly explain what the friar was studying, a great addition to those new with the concepts of genetics/5.

While Mendel's research was with plants, the basic underlying principles of heredity that he discovered also apply to people and other animals because the mechanisms of heredity are essentially the same for all complex life forms. Through the selective cross-breeding of common pea plants (Pisum sativum) over many generations, Mendel discovered that certain traits show up in offspring without.Heredity is when certain traits are passed from the parents to the children.

Traits are characteristics such as eye color, height, and athletic ability. Heredity is passed through genes in the DNA molecule.

In biology the study of heredity is called genetics. Scientist Gregor Mendel ( - ) is considered the father of the science of genetics.'The Gene: an intimate history' is a most readable story about what it means to be human.

It is a book that attempts to shine a light on the complex and often fraught history of understanding heredity/5(3K).
