Who is considered the father of genetics?

Charles Darwin

Gregor Mendel

Barbara McClintock

Thomas Hunt Morgan

Conducting research in the middle of the 19th century, Gregor Mendel figured out that plants showed certain features — like purple versus white flowers — based on the traits of the plants bred to make them.

Other geneticists in the 1800s had tried to uncover what Mendel found but failed to understand how different traits passed from one plant to its offspring. Mendel’s discoveries were largely ignored until the 20th century.

Answer: The correct answer is Gregor Mendel
