MENDELIAN INHERITANCE

first proposed by Gregor Mendel (1822 - 1884) in 1865, the theory of Mendelian Inheritance was one of the first theorists looking at genetics, specifically looking at different types of inheritance. It included the principles of- autosomal dominance, autosomal recessiveness and sex-linked inheritance.

MENDELIAN INHERITANCE: "Mendelian inheritance was the first theory to summarize the concepts of- autosomal dominance, autosomal recessiveness and the idea of a sex-linked inherited disease or condition."
