Gregor Mendel, who is known as the "father of genetics", was an Austrian monk who discovered the basic principles of heredity using pea plants. He choose pea plants because they where easy to cross and because of their many distinct varieties. Two very important laws he purposed was the Law of segregation, explaining how alleles separate individually to gamete cells, and the Law of Independent Assortment, explaining how alleles sort independent of each other from parent to offspring.
