Expert Answer:

In the year 1902, Boveri and Sutton proposed the idea of chromosome theory of inheritance which was subsequently confirmed by Morgan in the year 1933. According to this theory, the Mendelian factors which are now called as genes, are located on the chromosomes and it is the chromosomes which segregate and assort independently during meiosis and recombine during the process of fertilization.
