Description

Gregor Mendel is known as the Father of Modern Genetics. His work on pea plants form the basis for what we know about how traits are passed on from Parents to Offspring. In this video, I deal with his Laws of Heredity and also with some terms that are essential to our understanding of genetics. We look at the Punnett Square and how it’s useful in making predictions. Why do you look the way you look and what role do your genes place? These are some of the exciting concepts I cover in this section.

This is part Chapter 10 in the textbook Biology: The Dynamics of Life, which is the chapter on Mendel and Meiosis.

Outline

  • Who is Gregor Mendel

    I'm glad that you found it helpful. Hope you find all the future videos just as helpful. I'm also going to be putting up a game to quiz your understanding of this chapter. It should be up over the next few days.
