  • Drug Discovery- These scientists employ experise in molecular biology, cell biology , pharmacology and today's hot biotechnology like gene therapyor antigens to discover new drug molecules.
  • Bioinformatics- As biotechnology or precisely genetics is mapping human genes , animals and plants, enormous amount of information is gathered. This information is about the nature and structure of the billions of genes that are being mapped. Bioinformatics specialists are combing knowledge of structural biology, computational chemistry , mathematics and information technology to manage the human information database
    .
  • Bioprocess engineering- Various products like alcohol, processed foods, vegetables, meat products, enzymes required in pharmaceutical formulations etc are manufactured by biological processes. There are scientists working in this area of bio-processing to solve manufacturing problems, developing new processes and so on.
  • Genetics- In this field scientists conduct research into the biochemical and physiological aspects of heredity, specializing in the examination of DNA. They often concentrate on human genetics which involves studying the biological basis for human variation and the causes of human genetic conditions. They are also directly involved in patient care, including prenatal diagnosis for genetic diseases and genetic counseling.
  • Receptor Biology-scientists here employ knowledge of multiple disciplines like biology, biochemistry, biophysics and bioengineering etc to research various exciting fields like protein engineering, drug deliverysystems etc.
  • Cell Biology- Cell biologist carry on research in various new fields like cell therapy and tissue engineering. Cells are the engine sand brains of many processes and the biologist who understand these new frontiers is a cell biologist.
  • Biochemistry;Biochemist study the chemical make up of living matter as well as molecular basis for the processes that occur in cells. They develop medical, agricultural, food science, pharmacological, industrial, environmental and other practical applications using their scientific expertise.
  • Microbiology- Microbiologists study the growth and characteristics of micro organisms such as viruses, bacteria, fungi , parasites as well as their interactions with the environment. They develop industrial, medical and other practical applications.
