Caption: Plaque commemorating Gregor Johann Mendel (1822- 1884), Austrian botanist and founding father of genetics. This is mounted above his grave in a cemetery in Brno, Czech Republic. The Abbey of Saint Thomas (also in Brno) houses a collection of Mendel relics (the Mendelianum). Mendel, the sixth abbot (from 1868) of the Abbey, conducted his breeding experiments with pea plants here, discovering the statistical laws of heredity. From his results, he postulated the existence of a unit of heredity that is now called the gene. A new exhibition, The Genius of Genetics, opened at the Abbey in May 2002.
