Science isn’t my best subject, but I think genetics is an interesting subject. I took a genetics class in high school, and despite not having an enthusiastic teacher, I’m still interested in genetics. I don’t know that I’ll really understand it even after studying it, but I want a hobby for the summer.
I don’t know if that’s going to be possible to study something like this just over the summer, but I thought I’d see what everyone here thought. I’m thinking of either getting some guppies and trying to breed them for pretty tails (or breed them to be larger than normal “super” guppies) or trying to breed plants. I know the guppies would take more work, so maybe I’ll go with plants. Back in that high school class I took, there were some plants we used that matured quickly, maybe called “minute plants”? I really don’t remember. I think we had to use a growing lamp though, so I was wondering if those would work if I just had them out in the yard.
I think I’d enjoy having fish more than plants, but I don’t know if that will happen because of the time and supplies it would take for fish. So if anyone has any ideas that I’m not thinking of, advice, or anecdotes, I’d like to hear it.
