Gregor Mendel Genetic Makeup
916 wordsNote: Done for a grade 9 social-studies project. Not very much time and research was spent on this topic. Klyment Tan, September 27, 1997 Change in Genetics Genetics and biotechnology are very old fields of science. During the time of the Egyptians, people have used primitive genetics to produce better crops and livestock. The similar species were crossbreed to produce new species with more desirable traits.

Gregor Mendel People Began
644 wordsGregor Mendel was born in Heinzendorff in 1822 and died in 1884. Ever since Mendel was a boy he was very interested in science. Whenever his friends would come back from school they would tell Mendel what they studied and he would be so excited. Mendel was so interested about what his friends told him that he begged his father to let him study. This meant a great sacrifice to his father he because owned a small farm. Needless to say, he sent his young son Gregor, who was only eleven to school. A...

Gregor Mendel Nitrogenous Bases
2,810 wordsIn the past few years, genetic engineering and cloning has come a long way. In a 1968 World Encyclopedia, genetics is described as the science of in-heritage (World Encyclopedia, pg. 84), and only refers to the original pea work by Gregor Mendel as the most recent experiments and references. The expand-tion of what genetics is does not take the space of half a page. In 1978, another encyclopedia has ten pages on the subject, though it focuses on plant genetic manipulation. As defined in Biology ...

Gregor Mendel Twenty One
590 wordsGregor Mendel is considered the father of the discipline of Genetics. It is ironic that he bears this exposition, because Gregor Mendel never used the term gene or genetics in his life. It was not until 1905, twenty-one year after Mendel's death, that William Bateson baptized Mendel's work as genetics. Like many brilliant minds before him, Mendel was ahead of his era; his findings were ignored for nearly thirty years. Gregor was of peasant upbringings; his father was a farmer. He was born on Jul...

Generation To Generation Gregor Mendel
1,312 wordsWhat is Genetics? Genetics is usually defined as the transmission of traits from one generation to the next. Although correct in its meaning, the definition is rather vague. Genetics not only involves the transmission of traits from generation to generation, but it also involves every biological occurrence in an organism. The history of genetics, beginning with the ideas of Aristotle up till the rediscovery of Mendel's work, has gone through many changes both in theory and discovery. The history...

Gregor Mendel Second Law
1,343 wordsGregor Mendel was an Augustinian nineteenth century monk who, due to a series of momentous experiments, is now widely regarded as the forefather of genetics. Mendel studied the inheritance of seven contrasting characteristics of the species Pisum sativum, more commonly known as the garden pea. Each of the variables that Mendel experimented with were discontinuous; there were no intermediate forms. For example, one of the variables was length of stem, which was always either tall or short. From h...
