CZ VIP Nr. 11 – J.G.Mendel


I´m scientist, founder of genetics and discoverer of the basic laws of heredity. Of course you know my name, I´m Gregor Johann Mendel. I was studying maths and science in Wien and there I found wonder of combinatorics and probability theory. I knew that maths and statistics is a key for my work and experiments with pea. I formulated three rules of inheritance. 

I was really celebrity in my live. But the real benefit of work was until my death. I was declared the founder of genetics. But statistics was my life… I watched the weather every day and worked for the Vienna Institute of Meteorology. 

Today I have my own museum in Brno, my house is cultural heritage and the first Czech science station in Antarctica is named by myself.
