Gregor Mendel is known as 'the Father of Modern Genetics' published his work, Versuche über Pflanzenhybriden [Experiments on Plant Hybridization], on hereditary traits of peas, in 1866. The insight of his work became apparent later when the science of genetics confirmed his findings.

Law of Independent Assortment (later known as Mendel's Laws of Inheritance)
'Invisible factors' (today called genes) in hereditary can be of two types: dominant or recessive.
Pea characteristics identified by cross-breeding, laying down the mathematical rules for the passing on of dominant and recessive genes in heredity.
Mendel studied 29,000 pea plant for seven characteristics: height, pod shape, pod colour, seed shape, seed colour, flower location and colour. He discovered that there were precise mathematical relationships: 25% of plants had recessive alleles, 50% were hybrid, 25% were purebred dominant.

Archimedes was a Greek, living in Magna Graecia. He is considered one of the greatest mathematicians and engineers of the ancient world, and the source for many fascinating stories and anecdotes.
He who understands Archimedes and Apollonius will admire less the achievements of the foremost men of later times.
