The modern science of genetics had its start in 1866 when an Austrian monk named Gregor Mendel provided a simple yet powerful description of how traits are passed on from one generation to another. Thanks to Mendel, when we think of our children, we can see them as a mixture of their two parents, with traits from both sides becoming more evident as they grow.
