Mendel Day World Wide
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 curtural legacy.
Mendel Day 2016 has hot spots in Brno as Mendel's home town, Vienna (Europe), Tucson (USA), Sydney (Australia), and is supported by the Japan Mendel Society.
See how others celebrated!
