Mendels Discoverie�1857 Mendel began breeding garden peas in the garden of the monastary to study inheritance Used hybridization, which is the mating of two contrasting organisms, to study how characters are inheritedObserved that offspring inherited characteristics from their parents on a 3:1 ratioHe concluded that:1. There are different versions of genes (called alleles)2. For each character, offspring inherits one allele from each parent3. Two alleles are always present, but only one (dominant) is visible in the offsprings appearance�4. Alleles segregate during gamete production 5. The allele for each character is inherited independentlyThese discoveries follow the rules of probabilityT
Phenomena in Genetics1. incomplete dominance- the offspring has an appearance that is in the middle
