From Lamarck to Darwin ...

When Charles Darwin published his book "The Origin of Species" in 1859, it was not clear which wave of indignation, but also of scientific progress, had been unleashed. But what is evolution? Evolution explains the change in the characteristics of a population over generations through selection. Gregor Mendel, in particular, has an important role to play in his hereditary teachings of 1865. He explained with Mendel's rules how characteristics are passed on from generation to generation. With the findings of Oswald Avery in 1944, who first identified DNA as a genome and its structural decryption by the scientists James Watson and Francis Crick, one speaks today of the synthetic theory of evolution, which combines all knowledge from different research areas together.
