We named our company after Gregor Mendel, the Father of Genetics. He’s the guy that discovered how plants and animals (humans too!) inherit traits through breeding. All the hybrids you see now in crops owe a nod to the experiments that he conducted back in the mid-1800’s.
Men-dell? Men-dull? Men-dil? We’ve heard it all and everyone says it differently. We mostly say Men-dull. Technically it’s mĕn′dl :)
Through Gregor Mendel’s research on over 10,000 pea plants modern day genetics was born. Our logo is both a tip of the hat to the pea experiments that Gregor Mendel is most famous for, as well as the rising of the sun.
The same co-founders of RapidLED are also on the founding team of Mendel Science. Mike and Eric are involved in the day-to-day operations of Mendel and play a hands-on role in customer service, product development, and all aspects of the business.
