Where are the best places for conducting scientific research?
I hope to enter the field (likely along the lines of genetic or cellular/molecular biology research) after college; however, I know that tons of others are hoping to do the same. I have also heard that scientific research is being less and less funded in the United States. With that reality looming over my head, I'm already worrying about if I'll get a position that I will enjoy and be able to survive financially with- and I'm only a freshman! Are there particular areas of the country where it's easier to make it as a researcher? Or are there other parts of the world I could set my sights on? #research #stem #women-in-stem #women-in-science #science #life-sciences #biology #genetics #cell-biology #molecular-biology
I wanted to know if I can have a career in forensics with biotechnology?
I have completed my undergraduate studies in Biotechnology. My project work was based on the medicinal and molecular properties of local algae. Since I was in college, I was always fascinated with forensics, however I have not been able to study it at university because we didn't have it in my country. That would be nice if I could get some valuable advice so that I can advance in my career path. Thanks. #forensic #scientist #marine #life-sciences

What are the steps that a virologist under goes to investigate an unknown virus?
My interest career wise is investigation. I'm less than 3 months away to start my bachelors degree in Biology and I have been thinking into what branch I'll be delving in to once I finish it. One of them is virology. I understand that this studies the deseases that viruses cause in an organism. But what exactly does the virologist do in the lab that brings him/her more knowledge about the specimen. I'm intrigued because the virus itself is dangerous due to its effects. I want a response that highlights the processes done to the virus to acquire more information about it. Thank you. #biology #chemistry #environmental-science #environment #laboratory #life-sciences #microbiology #virology

Being a current high school senior and going to college next year to study on a pre-medicine track, would you recommend majoring in a broad science such as Biology or Chemistry? How about a more specific major like Microbiology?
I am interested in working in the medical field. I don't have a set career in mind but I am looking at pursuing a career as a Physician or Physician Assistant. I am thinking about majoring in Biology but I was told by a friend of mine that it is better to major in a subject that is specific since it comes with more career options. He was telling me this based on his college experience. #college #biology #physician #careers #undergraduate #life-sciences #pre-medicine
