I seem to have a problem
I keep trying to think of ideas to do for my research next semester and read the new Harry Potter book at the same time. Harry's winning so far. I'm planning on meeting with my mentor and her husband this Friday and I still have no real original ideas. This sort of worries me but I'm not sure what they expect of me. I don't want to say they don't expect a lot from me but I guess I'm not sure how much to give...if that makes sense.
I"m interested in the subject matter but I'm not sure what area I want to explore. What would you want to know most about bacteria that is only capable of living in extremely salty areas? I sort of want to try my hand at a gene knockout, since I've never tried one before and think that, even if I fail at my attempt, it would be something I could learn from and write about easily.
But what gene to knockout? Hmm...
I'd like to explore aerobic and anaerobic respiration...the purple membrane gene, the gas vesicles...hmm...so where to begin?!
