In 2015 there are 150 years since the presentation of Gregor Mendel's famous breeding experiments with peas and other plants. While Mendel's results did not have much immediate impact, their "rediscovery" in 1900 formed the basis for the field of genetics and for the "modern synthesis" that remains the backbone of evolutionary biology.

In this one-day symposium we will discuss the historical impact of Mendel's discovery and debate its present-day relevance in modern genetics.

Science in Transition is an initiative from the Netherlands, arguing that Science has become a self-referential system where quality is measured mostly in bibliometric parameters and where societal relevance is undervalued.

Professor Frank Huisman, on of the initiators of Science in Transition, is visiting the Science Studies Colloquium Series to discuss their views.
