Experiments on Plant Hybridization by Gregor Mendel

This seminal work in the field of genetics presents the results of a series of experiments conducted on pea plants, which led to the discovery of fundamental laws of inheritance. The author meticulously cross-bred different varieties of peas and meticulously recorded the traits of their offspring, leading to the formulation of the principles of segregation and independent assortment. These principles, which underpin modern genetics, explain how traits are passed from parents to offspring and how different traits are inherited independently of each other.
