EPS Mendel-200 Mini-symposium (Hybrid)

This year we celebrate the 200th birth year of Gregor Mendel (1822-1884), the founder of genetics. According to the historian of science Jan Sapp: “There is no greater legend in the history of science than that of the experiments of Gregor Mendel. Three moments in this legend are extraordinary: 1) how in the 1860s, Mendel single-mindedly discovered the laws governing the inheritance of individual characters; 2) how the scientific world failed to recognize the monumental importance of these findings during its life-time; 3) the remarkable “rediscovery” in 1900 of what later came to be called Mendelism”.
