No, but that does sound interesting. I want to talk with my cellular biology professor about that now. XD

Aside from marine biology, evolution has fascinated me. Once applied, it amazed me how much natural selection explained how species can have their allele frequencies change either through natural or artificial means based on their environment or through beneficial mutation. I have Charles Darwin's Origin of the Species, but I've yet to finish reading the entire thing. I need to get on that, but I'm reading Lord of the Rings at the moment. XD

Also, once I was able to get the basics of a Punnett square for a 2+ trait cross, Mendelian genetics became interesting as well.
