Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Considered one of the greatest scientists in history, Gregor Mendel was the first person to map the characteristics of a living thing's successive generations, thus forming the foundation of modern genetic science. In "Gregor Mendel," distinguished novelist and biologist Simon Mawer outlines Mendel's groundbreaking research and traces his intellectual legacy from his discoveries in the mid-19th century to the present. In an engaging narrative enhanced by beautiful illustrations, Mawer details Mendel's life and work, from his experimentation with garden peas through his subsequent findings about heredity and genetic traits. Mawer also highlights the scientific work built on Mendel's breakthroughs, including the discovery of the DNA molecule by scientists Watson and Crick in the 1950s, the completion of the Human Genome Project in 2003, and the advances in genetics that continue today.

About the Author

Simon Mawer is a noted novelist and biologist. The author of the historical novels The Fall, The Gospel of Judas, and Mendel’s Dwarf, Mawer lives with his family in Rome, where he has spent the past 20 years teaching biology.
