Firstly choosing Biotech, I am sure, you have a research bend of mind.
But just being a Graduate would not help. You would not work as a researcher, but would have to work under a research team.So if you are interested purely in research you would have to pursue a Masters program and can opt for research programs into Animal Husbandry, Agriculture development, fisheries, gene molecular development, immunology,development of vaccinations, pharmaceutical, conservation of natural resources, nutrition, tissue culture and many more.
