Tag: Mendel pea experiment
Taken from the genetic analysis studies of Gregor Mendel, it was all about the inheritance of seven different features in peas, including height, flower color, seed color, and seed shape.
To do so, he first established pea lines with two different forms of a feature, such as tall vs. short height. He grew these lines for generations until they were pure-breeding (always produced offspring identical to the parent), then bred them to each other and observed how the traits were inherited.
This study is very essential in the advancement of science. And like any other breakthroughs, the lessons that we learned from the past takes us into a much more meaningful understanding of how we could get through things fairly easily.
If you read my posts on the topic of the coronavirus so far… and I mean all of them, not just cherry picking them… I think you will find that I have attempted consistently to apportion my viewpoint to the actual facts on the ground and have, in the main, pretty well correctly described what was happening and what would happen.

There are reasons besides, as well, which I’d like to share with you in this post.
