Greatest Inventions of All Time!
Recently I came across an article about the greatest inventions as determined by a large group of scientists, philosophers, educators, and other professions. Their task was to create a list of "the Greatest Inventions of All Time." Conveniently, the final list numbered fifty! so, I'm starting with #50 and working my way down to Numero Uno in December.

Fear not as I will offer you some hints as to what the invention was.


Humans have been manipulating this from the beginning of time. But it wasn’t until early 20th century that scientists discovered a forgotten 1866 paper by the Austrian Gregor Mendel that we figured out how this worked.

It is the art and science of changing the traits of things in order to produce desired characteristics. This can be accomplished through many different techniques ranging from simply selection to methods that make use of knowledge of genetics and chromosomes. 

It is practiced worldwide by individuals such as gardeners and farmers, or by professionals employed by organizations such as government  institutions, universities, or research centers.

I realize these clues are not very helpful so if you still need help, go to the bottom of this week's blog for multiple choices. . .
