Gregor Mendel: Planting the Seeds of GeneticsSeptember 15, 2006 – April 1, 2007

Regarded as the father of modern genetics, Gregor Mendel and his work are presented in a special exhibit at Chicago's Field Museum.

Original manuscripts, photographs, and scientific instruments evoke the world of scientists in the 1800s and early 1900s. Attendees will see the only remaining artifacts from the life of this great scientist. Plus, hands-on interactive displays allow you to conduct Mendel’s famous pea experiment yourself.
