Best Answer

Gregor Mendel was a monk and a teacher. He discovered genetics. He used pea plants to represent the 1 to 2 to 1 ratio. He mixed green and yellow peas seeds, and found out (after many tries) that the characteristics of two different peas would grow a new pea. For example: he put a wrinkly yellow pea with a smooth green pea and they grew into a wrinkly green pea.
