Once in a while we see a Google doodle
we just have
to cover. This one marks the 189th birthday of Gregor Mendel, the father of genetics
, whose vital discoveries about inheritance patterns in pea plants weren't fully acknowledged until after his death in 1884. Feeling overlooked in his final years, he famously promised himself that meine Zeit wird schon kommen
("my time will yet come"). And today, Gregor, it has.
