Transcript of Gregor Mendel Project

Gregor Johann Mendel
Where is he from?
Gregor Mendel was born on July 22, 1822, Heinzendorf, Austria (now Hyncice, in what is now the Czech Republic).
How he contributed to society!
Gregor has done alot to help us understand how genetics work but he also taught at a high school for biology and physics! Just imagine having one of the most famous scientist teach your class!
Gregor Mendel went to a monastry of St Tomas. He became what is known as a priest or a monk in 1847, but then went to school to study mathematics and science, in 1851. Where he studied was the University of Vienna. He is a botanist, a scientist, and a monk.
Who is Gregor Mendel? What is he known for?
He did experiments on peas to study the inheritance of traits. He concluded that the traits are passed down through hereditary elements in the gametes of the peas. Now of course there is more to it but that is just the basics..
As I was talking about in the first slide Gregor went to school in 1843 at the monastery of St Thomas. Here is the picture of the monastry.
Gregor Mendel is known as the "Father of Modern Genitics".

Here is the University where he studied science and math
Those two laws are the Law of segregation and The Law of Independent assortment.
He also found these two laws to help us understand the passing of traits and such.
The Law of Segregation is in three parts.
1.) Hereditary characteristics are determined by separate units (now called genes).
2.)These units occur in pairs.
3.)The genes in a pair segregate (separate) during the division of sex cells, and each sperm or egg receives only one member of the pair.
The Law of Independent Assortment states that each pair of genes behaves independently of all other pairs in the production of sex cells. Therefore, each gene pair is inherited independently of all other genes.
Hobbies and interest :)
Mendel loved nature and loved to spend his gardening which is how he had started the pea experiments. It also started his hobby of hybridization. This all leads to how we can classify genetics and traits today.
