  • Biology-Online • View topic - Is plant biology a good field to get into?
    that ecology is not a good idea He says there is very little funding That got me thinking about which fields are a good idea to get into in biology At first I was very repelled at the idea of working in biomedicine but I m thinking now that I should keep my options open The fields I m thinking of right now are mostly Plant biology specifically plant chemistry and natural products research Environmental microbiology Environmental science atmospheric science Toxicology air and water quality Anything environment related If I had to work in biomedicine the issues I find interesting are Cancer biology Molecular biology of aging How nutrition affects epigenetic markers Neurodegenerative diseases Genetic diseases genomic medicine Gene therapy gene counseling My major is biochemistry which is typically more useful for biomedical research I was also passionate about environmental biology though and plants in particular However I want to know which field is a good idea or not please and thank you Reply with quote Athira Athira Posts 6 Joined Fri Jan 09 2015 1 41 pm Thu Jan 15 2015 5 07 pm Hey I think you should not be repelled by biomedicine Its really good and would definitely make for a prestigious career And if you like biotechnology this would definitely make for a good career Now a days the field of biotec and bioinfomatics are fast growing too And by your post I guess you are interested in research so I think this would suit you I myself am a medical aspirant amd very much interested in the medical career Doctor Biomedicine would do soo much good to the world Obviously the choice is yours I am just suggesting And sorry for the late reply I recently joined this site Reply with quote cathytreat cathytreat Posts
