Mendel´s Paper Versuche über Pflanzen-Hybriden was published in Verhandlungen des naturforchenden Vereines in Brünn (Brno) in 1866. 150 years later, GENETICS republished the original Mendel´s article. Daniel Fairbanks, one of the authors and Mendelianum supporter, has kindly shared with us this new translation which differs from others in an attempt to be both more accurate than previous ones and also more accessible.
Japan Mendel Society, one of those who supported Mendelianum in organization of the first international Mendel Day this year, is closing the special year 2016 memorizing 150 years after publication of Mendel´s discovery vy an unique exhibition. The exhibition is open from October 8 to December 18, 2016.
On March 8, 1865 Mendel completed his talk in Brno presenting his later famous data and radical explanation arising from his Experiments on Plant Hybrids. The following year his paper was published and Mendel´s work entered the international scene. After 150 years, to commemorate those events, an international Mendel Day has been proposed by the Mendelianum in Brno and supported by scientists from all over the world to connect people interested in popularization, propagation and development of Mendel´s scientific and cultural legacy.
