Hi Astrid, I just posted a reply to your inquiry about alternative traits for the artificial selection experiment. You can find it here: http://fastplants.ning.com/forum/topics/selection-experiments-with-fast-plants

Hope it helps!

Hi Astrid, I reposted your question in the discussion area, and I don't mean to be ignoring your good inquiry! I am just holding off a bit for some of the folks to respond who joined us in July for our Selection Workshop because what you are asking is exactly what was at the heart of our work during that Workshop. Please let me know if you need a more timely response, though -- Jackson and I will be sure to speak up by next week, otherwise. 

Thanks again for joining us and sharing your thinking about the selection lab!

Hey Astrid, welcome to the network! Thanks for your interest in Fast Plants!

I just wanted to let you know I was able to reply to your inquiry on the 10DAP Photo (see the following link: http://fastplants.ning.com/photo/10dap-data?context=latest) because I'm not sure if Ning will inform you that another comment was left.

Thanks again for joining us on our social network, and please feel free to pose any additonal questions you may have.
