very high level technology
and equipment


About half of all Biochemists
work for college and
universities, where they teach
or do research


Sometimes Biochemists work
with medicine, and when they
do they are known as Molecular
Bioligists


To be a Biochemist you must
have a Docotoral Degree

Plant Biologist


Plant biotechnology is a set of techniques used to adapt
plants for specific needs or opportunities.


researchers detect and map genes discover their functions,
select for specific genes in genetic resources and breeding, and
transfer genes for specific traits into plants where they are
needed.







Tristan Barnes

Plant Biologist
(Continued)


Look and study traits of plants, and use them to get the
plant to do or look like they want them to.





In this job you answer all the technical that customers have
about DNA library construction.



They also contact customers with updates and problems with
their libraries too.


For each new product, they are responsible for analyzing the
data, double checking the calculations, adding the excitions and
checking the RNA gels.



Some people in this job work in a lab.

Andrew Gutknecht

Biomedical Engineer


Biomedical Engineering is the application of engineering
principles and design concepts to medicine and biology.



This field seeks to close the gap between engineering and
medicine.



biomedical engineering applications include
the development of tissue growth, and
pharmaceutical drugs and biopharmaceuticals.


Biomedical Engineer
Continued


Biomedical engineering is a highly interdisciplinary field,
influenced by (and overlapping with) various other
engineering and medical fields


Pharmaceuticals are related to biotechnology in two
indirect ways: 1) certain major types (e.g. biologics) fall
under both categories, and 2) together they essentially
comprise the "non
-
medical
-
device" set of BME
applications.

Plant Biotechnologist


They are engineered to improve taste, texture, and appearance
of food.


They are also who created golden rice, which is a rice that has
a lot of vitamin A and beta
-
carotene which both are in need in
most middle east countries. Vitamin A deficiency is the cause
for 500,000 deaths and many cases of irreversible blindness.
The rice is yellow
-
gold in color where it gets its name.


They also develop new fertilizers that are
environmentally friendly and get rid of bugs from
what we eat.


The average salary is 52,000 dollars a year.

What is Microbiology


Microbiologists are biological scientists
who study organisms so small that,
generally, they can’t be seen unless you are
using a microscope.


Microorganisms they study include
bacteria, algae, yeasts, fungi, protozoa,
viruses, and other microscopic forms of
life.



Microbiologists isolate and make cultures
of microorganisms, identify their
characteristics, and observe their reactions
to chemicals and other kinds of stimuli.


Where are
Microbiologists?


Many microbiologists work for universities, where they
teach and do research. Others work at medical centers or at
private industry.


Some microbiologists work for government agencies.



Their jobs have different aspects and responsibilities



Most microbiologists do some research or laboratory
work.



They use special equipment to study microorganisms
including light microscopes, electron microscopes, glass
tubes, slides, and computers.
