Well genetically modified bacteria were made so that these new bacteria could produce human insulin...so a job doing something like that but ideas that have not been used yet?...

Actually, there is a lot of work out there for geneticists who don't have any morales (to do with cloning, GM foods, etc.).

You could do research into the biochemical components of love. Aaaw. Or similar. Biology also comes into psychology, the study of physiological reactions and stuff like that.

Do you believe that scientists have already cloned living humans? Eugh, sick thought, you could live with one and never know.

I don't think it is sick really, just wrong, at this point and time anyway.
Look at the animals they have cloned, short lifespan, genetic disorders, and of course the aging process. It would be cruel to put a human child through that. as far as being disgusted by them, well that is just another form of prejudice.

You know I've thought of that, and that means there's a possibility that we all are clones too. With modified memories. Boo. Or maybe we're not really clones at all, because we're not really here.
Scout - choose the subjects which sound the most interesting.

If you look at pictures of the inbred Habsburg degenerates, you would call that disgusting. I guess I'm prejudiced against the natural order of things like breeding - mind you, how come hamsters can be inbred yet don't suffer from so many disorders? Oh, at least I don't have to think about this sort of thing until uni.

You could couple genetics with law and make an absolute fortune - you can bet lawyers-***-geneticists will be in demand in the near future.
