Learn More About The Father Of Modern Genetics.

Johann Mendel or Gregor Mendel was a botanist/scientist.He researched about  his famous pea plant experiment.

Mendel discovered the basic fundamental of heredity.

He cross-fertilized pea plants that had obvious opposite characteristics. For example, tall with short, smooth with wrinkled,  green peas with yellow peas, etc. After examining his results,he reached two of his most important concl-usions. The Law of Segregation, if the dominant and recessive traits passed on from the parents to the offspring (child) to identify weather  a dominant or recessive offspring would come out you must use a Punnett square. A Punnett square is a diagram that shows if a seed would display such trait.

The Law of Independent Assortment is when that allele separate independently while the creation of gametes.Which traits are transferred independently of one another.
