Questo libro presenta la prima biografia italiana, scritta con fonti di prima mano, del padre della genetica Gregor Johann Mendel. Il libro porta a scoprire come Mendel, monaco agostiniano, condusse le sue ricerche all'interno dell'abbazia di Brno: dall'osservazione dell'orto e degli incroci di piante fino al primo autentico studio scientifico sulla trasmissione dei caratteri ereditari. Grazie alla scelta di un metodo di ricerca impeccabile e a una grande passione, Mendel fu in grado di formulare le leggi che ancora oggi sono alla base della genetica. La sua storia, tra meticolosi esperimenti e grandi scoperte, ma anche tra delusioni e ambizioni disattese, è un perfetto riassunto delle vicende che, ancora oggi, caratterizzano la vita di tanti scienziati. [Abstract translated by Google Translate: This is the abstract in English… This book features the first Italian biography, written with first-hand sources, of the father of genetics Gregor Johann Mendel. The book leads to discover how Mendel, an Augustinian monk, conducted his research inside the abbey of Brno: from the observation of the garden and the crossings of plants to the first authentic scientific study on the transmission of hereditary characteristics. Thanks to the choice of an impeccable research method and a great passion, Mendel was able to formulate the laws that still form the basis of genetics today. Its history, between meticulous experiments and great discoveries, but also between disappointments and unfulfilled ambitions, is a perfect summary of the events that, even today, characterize the lives of so many scientists.]
