An overview of Mendel's pea plant experiments.
Describes heredity and classical genetics, dominant and recessive traits, and heterozygous and homozygous genotypes.
Each father and mother pass down traits to their children, who inherit combinations of their dominant or recessive alleles. But how do we know so much about genetics today? Hortensia Jiménez Díaz explains how studying pea plants revealed why you may have blue eyes. Courtesy of TEDEducation
