    Trying to chose between life science degrees!
    My current interests revolve mainly around genetics/gene expression/gene therapy/nuclei acids etc. but I'm not quite sure which degree would fit best with these areas (my guess is biochemistry?) or what careers opportunities there are. Right now, I'm considering going into research but, again, I'm not quite sure how I'd go about this.
    Thanks for the replies in advance

    Career paths for Biochemistry Bsc?

    With a PhD in Biochemistry, what kind of research opportunities/areas are there?

    What degree would be needed or most useful/relevant for involvement in the Human Genome Project - Write?

    Best universities for biochemistry?

    Hi! I'd imagine biochem is the most appropriate degree as biomed tends to lead more to the pathology side of things. I think you can do an MSC in genetics specifically after a degree as well
