History of Genetics -
In the mid-1800s, Austrian monk Gregor Mendel revolutionized genetic science by employing precise pollination methods and statistical analysis. Mendel's pioneering methods allowed scientists later to determine how specific traits could be inherited into subsequent generations and to "coax" plants to swap traits they wouldn't readily exchange in nature.
