Special Exhibition of Mendel’s 190th Anniversary: Peas and the Priest
Exhibition Period: from October 17, 2012 to February 28, 2013
Curator: Sheng-Yu Huang, Yi-Cheng Lin
2012 is the 190th anniversary of Mendel’s birth, who is known as the "Father of Genetics". To commemorate this, National Cheng Kung University worked with the Mendel Museum of Masaryk University in Brno, Czech Republic to organize a special exhibition, which is one of the extended results of the Museum’s effort towards internationalization.
The exhibition features copies of Mendel’s hand-written manuscript (Global Limited Edition), a brief introduction of Mendel’s life story, interactive multimedia and animation displays, etc. The Museum made a great effort in inviting the exhibition to be transported to Taiwan because of Mendel’s great influence on the development of genetics and biology. The exhibition can also help Taiwan people understand central Europe and the Czech Republic, which in itself has great educational value.
