“You went to high school and you learned genetics. You heard about a certain Gregor Mendel who crossed peas and came up with the idea that there is a dominant and a recessive allele. You did not particularly like the guy because there would always be a question about peas with recessive and dominant alleles at the exam. But you grew up, became wiser and just as you started to like him, you heard from someone that he faked his data….”

Did he or didn’t he?

You can read Guillaume Filion’s latest blog entry about the father of Mendelian genetics and statistics – but you will have to choose by yourself!
