History of Genetics -
In the mid-1800s,
Austrian monk Gregor Mendel revolutionized genetic science by employing precise
pollination methods and statistical analysis. Mendel's pioneering methods
allowed scientists later to determine how specific traits could be inherited
into subsequent generations and to "coax" plants to swap traits they
wouldn't readily exchange in nature.
