IMPORTANCE OF MENDELISM

1 .       Improvement of Plants

Hybridization is used for obtaining improved varieties of plants. This process results in combinations of desirable characters of two or more species or varieties. In other words, desirable characters of one species are transferred to the other. Laws of inheritance have helped the plant breeders in this regard.

2 .       Improvement of Animals

Mendelism has enabled the plant breeders to improve the races of domestic animals. Hybridization through artificial insemination has proved highly successful in improving the quality of milk, meat, egg and other animal products.

3 .       Improvement of Human Race

Laws of heredity postulated by Mendel are equally applicable to mankind.

4 .       Disputed Parentage

Study of inheritance of the blood group can solve the disputed parentage of a child.

5 .       Genetic Counselling

With the knowledge of Mendelism, genetic counsellor can predict the possibility of hereditary defect in a future (unconceived child) and even detect genetic disorders in early foetus.
