He was inspired by the rediscovery of Gregor Mendels work on plant hybridisation to pursue further experimental work in what he named genetics.

He realised that Mendels results could help to solve difficult biological questions and controversies which others had glossed over, and to challenge assumptions underlying evolution as it was understood at the time. After two years as Professor of Biology at Cambridge he left in 1910 to become Director of the newly founded John Innes Institute.

Batesons argumentative personality and unorthodox approach did not make him popular, and his reputation declined after his death. Was Bateson misunderstood? Was evolution misunderstood? This 1928 volume including a substantial memoir by Batesons wife gives readers access to selected papers and addresses and allows them to consider him afresh.
