Teaching Genetics with Fast Plants--Abbreviating Procedures to Fit Busy Schedules

I'm sharing here a DRAFT document that describes options for teaching genetics with our "Who's the Father?" procedures in ways that reduce the amount of class time required. We receive quite a few requests for help with timing these lessons, and perhaps this table could be a good way to communicate various options.
