    Tuesday Jul 21 | Radio Prague

    The Moravian city of Brno has been marking a double anniversary this week: 183 years since the birth of the founder of modern genetics Gregor Mendel, and 150 years since his discovery that led to uncovering the science behind heredity. St. Thomas's Abbey in Brno's Old Town - in whose garden Mendel made his famous discoveries growing peas, and which today houses the Mendel Museum - hosted the celebrations on Monday, including an audiovisual show created by award-winning American "biomedical animator" Drew Berry, backed by music from Czech-based composer Duncan Hendy, and performed by the Brno Philharmonic.
