Peas are easy to grow and breed. o Not a genetic dissection, only interested in the way in which the hereditary units that influenced those properties were inherited from generation to generation. o Mendel investigated the inheritance of 7 properties of the pea species: color, shape, pod color, pod shape, flower color, plant height, and position of the flowering shoot. o Phenotypes o The lines used by Mendel were pure lines , meaning that, for the phenotype in question, all offspring produced by matings within the members of that line were identical. o Crosses: when pollen from plant is transferred from the anthers of one plant to the stigmata of another. o A special type of mating is a self : carried out by allowing pollen from a flower to fall on its on stigma.
