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.

At the occasion of the 50th anniversary, Mendelianum/the museum of J. G. Mendel located earlier in the Old Brno Augustinian Abbey moved to formed headquarters of the Mendel´s Scientific Society (Agriculture Society). Mendel was a member of the Society 40 years, met here his colleagues, gained motivation for his research and shared ideas. Additionally, the filial organization of this Society, the Nature Research Society, is connected with presentation and publication of Mendel´s discovery.
