Gregor Mendel learned about heredity by conducting experiments on the heredity of seven true-breeding (homozygous) traits of pea plants. Fortunately Mendel had a good head for Mathematics, and through his studies he was able to deduce three laws of heredity; the law of segregation, the law of independent assortment, and the law of dominance.
