For the longest time I've always wanted to be a genetic engineer, working on gene expression and how to change the genome to benefit us. So it never really crossed my mind that Genetics wasn't the course for me, it seemed obvious, however at a recent Open Day I got to talk to some students and a professor doing what I want to do and they pointed me away from Genetics and towards Developmental or Molecular Biology.
I'd be incredibly grateful if someone could help me sort out the differences between the two and which would be more appropriate for someone looking to move into a career working splicing beneficial genes into animals and if I ever see the day humans.
A further point is that it seems Developmental Biology is a niche course only offered by 3 Uni's, 2 of which are a world away in Scotland and the third being a very high target grade for me to aspire to. So I'm really stuck between the concept of a dream career vs the viability of the process of getting there
Developmental Biology vs Molecular Biology; Help!
