Default Having a really hard time with an idea

Hey, as you can obviously see by the title, I'm having quite a hard time coming up with an idea. I am looking for an idea that is at a Grade 10 level, but can probably understand ideas of a higher level. Last year, my project was called "Causing Genetic Mutations in E. Coli", where I pretty much took E.Coli with the plasmid pGEX4T1, which produces Beta Lactamese allowing for Amp resistance, and zapped them with X-rays, to see if I could cause I mutation in the plasmid such that the antibiotic resistance was lost. At 1000 Gy of radiation, I had about a 10% mutation frequency.

The areas of science that I am interested in are Bacterial Genetics, Chemistry and Pyrotechnics. I am also interested in Physics having to do with String Theory and such, but I don't really know as much about that and I'm not sure how I could test that without huge expensive equipment.

I have access to a lab, which was were I did my project last year.

I currently have no deadline for an idea, but the project needs to be finished by about March/April, so I have loads of time to do the project.

Your help is appreciated

Thanks
