    work plagiarized by another scientist Hugo de Vries in the 19th century.[1] Mendel had come up with breakthroughs in genetics, but no one realized what he had accomplished. Later in the early 1900’s, de Vries published a paper with very similar to Medel’s work. It was not realized until a third scientist Carl Correns was doing some similar experiments and read the works of both Mendel and de Vries. In his paper, he gave credit to Mendel and discredited de Vries’ work.[2] The problem of plagiarism

    There are two sides to every story. Where one might see love and passion another sees burden and indifference. Such is the case with Peter de Vries “To His Importunate Mistress”, a comedic parody of the 17th century work by Andrew Marvell, “To His Coy Mistress”. Peter de Vries uses satire and rhyme as a way to present a humorous approach to the reality and consequence of a modern day extra-marital affair. While poetry is a literary art that takes on many somber subjects, some feel that humor and

    accomplishments privately as his work was discovered three decades later by scientists conducting agricultural research. The scientists were: Erich Tschermak, Hugo de Vries, and Carl Correns who all independently verified Mendel's work leading to the "age of genetics" where we gained even more knowledge on genes and even DNA. (Nirenberg, n.d.). Hugo Marie de Vries was a Dutch botanist and one of the first geneticists who started studying hybridization. Through his studies, he was convinced that traits were inherited

    person to discover inheritance. In 1900, three scientists Hugo de Vries, Carl Correns, and Erich von Tschermak-Seysenegg, rediscovered his laws, tweaking them and changing certain details. The DNA Learning Center (https://www.dnalc.org/ Dolan DNA Learning Center n.d.) says that Correns and de Vries, both performed their own experiments and came to the same conclusions that Mendel did, so they both “redefined” Mendel 's studies. Hugo de Vries also discovered the “theory of mutation” after his experiments

    parental characteristics such as color, shape and other properties of the flower and seeds. Mendel’s research paper remained dormant & unnoticed by the scientific world until 1900. It was in the beginning of 20th century that three botanies, namely Hugo de Vries, working on Oenothera spp, Carl Correns working on Xenia spp, peas and maize and Erich von Tshermak working on various flowering plants, independently drew the conclusion like Mendel. Later these botanists came across the research paper of Mendel

    As the sun was setting on the 19th century, a new theory, called eugenics was just beginning to rise. Eugenics is the idea that human mental, moral, temperamental and physiological traits are passed down through generations, and that society should attempt to foster the reproduction of those with favorable traits and discourage or eliminate those with less than favorable traits. In the early parts of the 20th century, eugenics was put into practice across the rich world. This increase, not only in

    Drosophila is often used as a model organism in the study of genetics. Morgan did not start working seriously with flies until 1907. He was looking for evidence of mutation, an observed deviation from the norm, as had been described by biologist Hugo de Vries in flowering plants. He had a breakthrough in April of 1910 when instead of viewing the vermillion eyes of the wild type Drosophila, he observed a male fly with a white-eyed

    Biology is the science of living systems. It is inherently interdisciplinary, requiring knowledge of the physical sciences and mathematics, although specialities may be oriented toward a group of organisms or a level of organization. BOTANY is concerned with plant life, ZOOLOGY with animal life, algology with ALGAE, MYCOLOGY with fungi, MICROBIOLOGY with microorganisms such as protozoa and bacteria, CYTOLOGY with CELLS, and so on. All biological specialties, however, are concerned with life

    Early 1953. Three labs, two in England and one in California, raced to discover the structure of deoxyribose nucleic acid. At Cal Tech in Pasadena, California, Linus Pauling had recently discovered the alpha-helix. Now he was turning his attention to DNA. At King's College in the University of London, Maurice Wilkins and Rosalind Franklin, although hampered by their inability to get along with one another, had taken actual pictures of DNA using x-rays and were hot on the trail.
