Mendel and Genes

Lecture no. 2 from the course: Understanding Genetics: DNA, Genes, and Their Real-World Applications

Mendel and Genes

Taught by Professor David Sadava | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

Monk and scientist Gregor Mendel, working in the late 1800s, learned through pea-plant experiments that each parent's characteristics were particulate, that is, chemically independent. His meticulous research—the beginning of modern genetics—languished for nearly 40 years before its value was discovered.
