Taryn Szalay, a Biology major from Wadsworth, OH shows off her hard work on her Independent Study, titled “Red Fish, Blue Fish: Genetic Differences in Carotenoid Deposition and Pigmentation in Red and Blue Betta splendens.” Taryn explains, “So far, I have sequenced a gene in red beta fish that is involved in pigmentation and immunity. My next steps include sequencing the same gene in blue Betta fish, and eventually comparing the coding sequences between both colors.” Who knew you could learn that much from your pet fish? 🐠Good luck, Taryn!
