Bateson, William (1861–1926)

William Bateson
William Bateson was a British biologist who founded the science of genetics. Bateson translated much of Gregor Mendel's pioneering work of inheritance in plants, so bringing it recognition. By his own experiments he also extended Mendel's theories to animals, which provided a foundation for the modern understanding of heredity.
