The study of genetics is one of the most amazing topics in the study of life that I was fascinated to learn at when I was in college. Amazing and exciting are the most appropriate words to describe studying genetics in a way that even the smallest thing in the living organism that could possibly be inherited to its daughter offspring are revealed.
Gregor Johann Mendel was born on July 20, 1822. He is a Czech-German.
As far as I learned, remembered from my previous lessons, but just correct me if I am wrong, he studied the inheritance of traits of the pea plants. Upon doing such, he postulated the Mendelian Law of Genetics which basically explains the heritable genes children of any living organism acquired from their respective parents.
