by Sir Gavin de Beer, F.R.S.
Today, a hundred years ago, the science of genetics was born. True, the world of science was slow to recognise the full significance of the principle that Gregor Mendel announced to the world, but with the advantage of hindsight we can see that Mendel's work was the logical and necessary complement to that of Darwin. Sir Gavin de Beer talks about the historical setting of Mendel's researches and argues a claim for regarding genetics as the very centre of science.
