Difficulties experienced by high school students when learning basic Mendelian genetics.
Some students' explanations demonstrated that they had embraced the neo-Darwinian model, which depends on both Mendelian genetics and evolution by natural selection:
Epigenetics is a tremendously exciting and evolving area of research today and will unquestionably challenge some dearly held tenets of Mendelian genetics.
Indeed, Mendelian genetics as a science may be said to date from the dawn of the twentieth century, nearly two decades after Mendel's death in 1884.
So at the turn of the 20th century, scientists with a can-do spirit and just enough knowledge of Mendelian genetics to be dangerous devised grand schemes to improve the American "protoplasm": They would segregate, sterilize, and perhaps even murder those deemed "unfit"--as much as 10 percent of the population.
Mendelian genetics refers to the simple quantitative inheritance of genes that express themselves in defined and predictable phenotypes.
Mendelian genetics still provides a sufficient explanation for many inherited diseases.
From Newtonian physics and Mendelian genetics to cutting-edge chaos theories, science explains how and why the world--including the business world--works the way it does.
The author focuses on two pivotal events in this conflict: the 1939 discussions which gave the Lysenkoists only a partial victory over the geneticists, and the infamous 1948 meeting of the Lenin All-Union Academy of Agricultural Sciences (VASKhNiL) which outlawed Mendelian genetics and supported Lysenko's ideas of "Michurinist Biology.
Explaining scientific consensus: The case of mendelian genetics (pp.
Telling in this regard is The Bell Curve's misunderstanding of Mendelian genetics.
The core of Mitman's work is an insightful working-out of Allee's and Emerson's development of animal ecology and their response to the revival of the Darwinist program and its synthesis with Mendelian genetics.
