He grew up in an Augustinian brotherhood and he learned agricultural training with basic education.

Gregor Mendel

 Gregor Johann Mendel (July 20, 1822 – January 6, 1884) was a German speaking Silisean scientist and Augustrian Friar who gained posthumous fame as the founder of the new science of genetics. Mendel demonstrated that the inheritance of certain traits in pea plants follows particular patterns, now referred to as the laws of Mendalian Science. The profound significance of Mendel's work was not recognized until the turn of the 20th century, when the independent rediscovery of these laws initiated...

Gregor Mendel Biography

Biography of Gregor Mendel From what I remember, Gregor Mendel used to come up in every biology textbook that I’ve had to use since middle school, and apparently having seen his name multiple times did not help me remember much of his work. So to give it another try at knowing who this person is and his contribution to science I decided he was the best choice. Gregor Mendel, like many of the most famous scientists, was a man of patience. For more than a decade, Mendel experimented with...

Gregor Mendel and the Principles of Inheritance Intro: In the 1800’s, a hypothesis existed that suggested that genetic material is contributed by the two parents by mixing an equivalent way. However, this “blending hypothesis” did not last long due to the discovery that if this had been true, we would end up with a uniform population of individuals. Gregor Mendel, a scientist and monk, documented a particulate mechanism for inheritance. This was developed before chromosomes were observed under...

Gregor Mendel, a Roman Catholic Monk

A Roman Catholic monk, Gregor Mendel (1822-1884), was raised on a farm and enjoyed gardening and mathematics. In 1856 he started to experiment with pea plants to explain why certain traits that appeared in one generation did not always reappear in the next generation. During eight years Mendel mixed over 30,000 plants by controlling their pollination and wanted to know why the results came to be. Mendel noticed that although there were some traits that were common amongst all the pea plants there...

The Garden of Inheritance

facts about Gregor Mendel. Firstly, he was a part of the Augustine order. He would make friends of house mice, which he would then use in his breeding experiments. Father Ramsik did not support Gregor Mendel's experimentation at all and criticized his work by saying that it was secular. He believed that science experiments were not a proper occupation for an Augustinian friar. He believed that the monastery was built as a house of prayer and worship. The experiments conducted by Gregor also worried...

Mendelian Genetics

MENDEL`S PRINCIPLES OF GENETICS 1.0 INTRODUCTION: 1.1 BACKGROUND Gregor Mendel, who is now considered as founder of classical genetics, ( Elrod S. & Stansfield w,2010), conducted a series of experiments using garden pea plants, his aim was to find a way of explaining to his fellow scientists who believed the blending theory which had been proposed earlier by Wiseman, that heredity involved the interaction of discrete separable factors (now known as genes) After a statistical analysis of the...

Drosophilia Lab Report

of this study was to cross and analyze the reciprocal crosses of wild flies and mutant flies. In this lab Drosophila melanogaster commonly known as fruit flies were used to understand some important genetic principles that were once proposed by Gregor Mendel. Mutant traits can be autosomal dominant, autosomal recessive traits, or even sex-linked dominant and sex-linked recessive. F1 and F2 generations were obtained by performing simple parental crosses. This was done so we could determine the mode...
