Father and Founder of genetics
The scientist, Gregor Johann Mendel is acknowlwdge as the “Father and Founder of genetics”. How inherited traits are transfer between generations comes from principles which was first proposed by Gregor Johann Mendel in 1866. We came to know about laws of inheritance or Mendel’s laws of inheritance from the results of Mendel’s experiment on pea plants.
The principles of Mendel's law is apply to the traits of plants, also in traits of the animals. The principles of Mendel's law also can explain how anyone inherit their parent's eye colour, hair colour etc. In next we study about the experiments performed by Mendel, which are very important to understand before learning about Mendel’s laws of inheritance.
