Page 382E: Mendel and Genetics
Welcome to MendelWeb
Visit this site to learn more about genetics. The site is built around Gregor Mendelís 1865 paper, translated as "Experiments in Plant Hybridization." Scroll down and click on Mendelís paper. You can read the paper in German or English on this site.
Gregor Mendel and Mendelian Genetics
Go to this site to read about Gregor Mendel and his experiments. Mendel came up with two generalizations based on his work that are now known as Mendelís Laws of Heredity.
Variation and Mendelís Laws
At this site you can learn more about dominant and recessive genes. Scroll down to look at the chart showing the tongue rolling trait in humans.
Gregor Mendelís Legacy
Go to this site to learn all about Mendelís experiments and laws. Scroll down and click on incomplete dominance and codominance. Incomplete dominance occurs when heterozygous individuals display a phenotype somewhere between the two homozygous phenotypes. Which of these flowers exhibits incomplete dominance: a pink snapdragon or a red-and-white striped carnation?

Human Genome Project Information
Visit this site to find information about the U.S. and worldwide Human Genome Project. Scroll down to see the goals of the project. Begun in 1990, the project was expected to last at least 15 years. However, a working draft of the entire human genome sequence was completed in June 2000. At this site you can find out everything you might want to know about the Human Genome Project.
The Human Genome
Go to this site to see a guide to online information resources about the human genome. This site is used by biomedical researchers from around the world. Click on any of the links inside the tan box in the middle of the page to read about the working draft of the human genome project.
The National Human Genome Research Institute
At this site by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) you can learn more about the Human Genome Project by clicking on the HGP at the right of the screen. You can find answers to any questions you might have about the Human Genome Project at this site, including the ethical, legal, and social implications of human genetics research.
