Selective Breeding and Hybrid Project - Genetics Hybridization Sales Campaign. In this Genetics research project, students will act as employees of Selective Breeding and Hybridization Inc, and are required to create an Ad Campaign for a new line of “hybridized” organisms.
100 years of results from retarded science experiments & selective breeding....very interesting.

The goal... create a scaleless carp that is easy to clean for consumption and a carp you can eat the skin for extra nutrition.

This was twenty-six years before a similar law was introduced by the Nazis in Germany in 1933
Easy care sheep - developed by AgResearch, easy care sheep have been selectively bred to be more productive and less labour-intensive for farmers. This focus story reveals more about these sheep and why they were developed
