MendelWeb

MendelWeb is devoted to the study of Mendelian experiments.

Prior to the availability of the Internet, individual classrooms were on their own to collect statistics for replicating Mendel's classic experiments, such as the widow's peak.

By accumulating data from a much larger sample of the population, authentic summary statistics can be compiled.
