I think we're being asked to list as many biology disciplines we can think of.

If you follow the link, it's pretty comprehensive. You can always make up more that combine subdisciplines into new disciplines, but I'm failing to see the point of this thread. Some context to the intent of the OP would be useful.

Edit: Never mind, the OP has been edited to clarify they want to know our favorites.

I'm in 11th grade and have no idea what I want do, but I know it will involve science. And I have a science project to do and I'm killing some time on here until I think of something. And for some reason I can't get my smiley face to work :)

Genomics, Transcriptomics, Proteomics, Metabolomics, Interactomics

Biology is starting to become a large-scale science like physics did at the beginning of the 20th century.
