Am I the only one who actually finds this stuff really, really interesting?

Your image made me think of this

I do genetics at Uni, I'm in the lab working with mutated bacteria so I definitely find it interesting!
#21 to #2 - MCmc (12/15/2012) [-]
do a PhD!
User avatar #22 to #21 - jamesrustler (12/15/2012) [-]
I'm still in High School, but I'm interested in most kinds of science; so we'll see where it takes me.
#32 to #22 - MCmc (12/15/2012) [-]
oh haha then go to college for a biology major! science is freaking fascinating and the best career in the world.
User avatar #33 to #32 - jamesrustler (12/15/2012) [-]
Aint that the truth! I was actually thinking about majoring in Chemistry or Physics (more than likely chemistry), but I'm not sure where I'd go from there.
#35 to #33 - MCmc (12/16/2012) [-]
Well physics and chemistry are both more math based, so thats good if you are good at math, but biologists with math skills are very valuable because so few have them. My background was in mathematical modeling in biology, and now i apply those skills to data analysis.
It really depends on what you're interested in. The degrees of freedom increase as you go from physics to chem to bio. Bio is often more applicable, but is less concrete as it involves far more moving parts. Chem is great if you're interested in technology, but is less of a "discovering the universe" sort of degree. Phys will give you concrete experiments but on very small systems, like energy levels in a calcium ion.
so just decide what interests you most and try to develop the skill sets. Also, if you want to do a PhD, try to get into an undergraduate research lab as soon as possible, that will help a lot.
is there anything you're particularly interested in?
User avatar #36 to #35 - jamesrustler (12/16/2012) [-]
Nothing specific, although things like Nuclear/particle Physics interests me, I don't have a specific idea for what I'd like to do if I followed the Chemistry path.

No, I'm pretty sure DNA scientists and people studying DNA find this stuff interesting so you're not the only one.
User avatar #4 to #3 - jamesrustler (12/14/2012) [-]
Fair enough, I meant the only one looking at this content.

Creating a data bank of prokaryotic single-mutated DNA is mad, now ?!

I'm graduating tomorrow with a bachelor's in microbiology and a minor in biotechnology; switching from computer engineering was the best decision of my life. instead of making computers do what I want, I make LIVING THINGS BEND TO MY WILL (and produce different proteins)
User avatar #25 to #23 - Alchemyst (12/15/2012) [-]
Wait, computers can do what you want?

I have a degree in biochemistry. The day I knew I had chosen the right major was the day we grew glow in the dark E. coli in class.
#20 - chuffberry (12/15/2012) [-]
in my bio lab we transformed bacteria so that they glowed green. i felt pretty  			*************		 badass. until i accidentally dropped the samples on the floor.

Pretty fun.

(I would post the picture, but I can't post pictures yet)

Is dideoxy chain-termination method the same as Sanger sequencing? Also you learn what this guy is doing in the first year of a bioscience uni course, it is fun.
User avatar #28 - novabird (12/15/2012) [-]
yes it is...

Am I the only one who gets annoyed when there is a science post all of a sudden every cunt is a ******* scientist? This phenomenon of instant subject expertise isn't exclusive to science posts though, it can be any profession, I've seen it in construction posts, automotive posts, computer tech posts etc.
User avatar #29 to #26 - breadbasket (12/15/2012) [-]
Because people who enjoy the subject can relate?
C'mon anon, get with the picture.
User avatar #19 - belladonnaheart (12/15/2012) [-]
Damn it...only read it in case it was one of the "Bet you didn't read this" post....

reminds me in how AP bio we are talking about the ideas of how stem cells would be created from mini clones, that are never allowed to grow, yet everyone makes a big ******* deal about it. they would clone the persons DNA simply for the blastocyst, which has the embryonic stem cells needed to potentially cure diseases! yet they want to stop all of that and ban it! we could do so many things with it. we are already using adult stem cells for healing skin, shown in this video www.youtube.com/watch?v=eXO_ApjKPaI its beautiful. but adult stem cells are not able to turn into every kind of cell. however embryonic ones are.

why the **** would you overlay smth with agar? Oo
User avatar #14 to #9 - yomawder (12/15/2012) [-]
Im pretty sure agar acts as a nutrient supply, I could be wrong though
User avatar #16 to #14 - biomedic (12/15/2012) [-]
It seems like a logical deduction, but no, agar is chosen because it is made of a gel of agarose sugar which can't be catabolised by most microorganic cultures.
User avatar #17 to #9 - biomedic (12/15/2012) [-]
The shape and characteristics of colonial growth of the sample organism is different when the colony is exposed, by overlaying it with agar it keeps the conditions relatively constant and makes comparisons between samples more reliable to compare.
#30 to #17 - anon (12/15/2012) [-]
I still don't get it - wouldn't a lid suffice? I mean overlaying the plates with agar means closing it airtight, doesn't lt? So no growth of an aerobic organism... And most of those mulecular cloning trials are done with coli...
User avatar #31 to #30 - biomedic (12/15/2012) [-]
the gel is porous so the organisms can still respire aerobically, to be fair I'm not 100% sure, I'm gonna have a read into it, but we've just been told it's good lab practice.
#34 to #31 - anon (12/15/2012) [-]
hmmm... thanks anyway...

Bah you haven't automated your virus creating yet? What kind of mad scientist doesn't have an automatic virus generator, or atleast a clone of himself to do it.

And seriously viruses is weak mad science, it's the easy way. Real mad science involves cloning animals while changing their DNA to fit your mad desires. I myself have currently made bears with super strength, snakes with teleportation and eagles with lazervision. I'm cirrently working on my blue whales crossed with elephants, thus creating giant landwalking mammals and then giving them firebreathing capabilities. MWAHAHAHHAAAHA It's the ultimate weapon!
