The Father of Genetics
Gregor Johann Mendel

Gregor Mendel is known as the father of genetics, because he figured out how the process of genetics works in the 1850s. He's not the author of our upcoming science article, Robert Winston is the author, but the article is written using Mendel's very important research and findings. Please read more about Gregor Mendel on page 94 in your textbook!
