Dear FriendAs you have done M.Sc in a specialized subject of biologica discipline and have wide scope in all the branches of biological research wheter it is eukaryotic, prokaryotic, or animal / plant sciences depends on your system of interest.Before coming to the subject matter and specialization I must explain the technical paths for you which brings you not only USA rather you will reach to UK.Germany.East Asia or Offshore with a potential to claim the best in research word.You have to qualify Gradaute Record Examination Test (GRE Test) or Test of English language proficiency (TOEFL) or Inernational English Language Testing System (IELTS) conducted by Education Testing Service exclusively recognized by Europe, USA and Australia to screen the aspirants based on stringent critera like anaalytical writing skill, critical writiing skill, Verbal reasoning and qauantitative testing. These entrance tests will provide you the gateway to see these country either for your graduate or any employement at postgrad level. Merely obtaining a testimonial or certificate is not going to fullfill your dream it is a tough nut to crack in terms of high score, the benchmarking is quite variable for each country as per the norms of consulators of that particular country.First you explore the available information regarding these tests and prepare, though it is not impossible for a student like you thousands of seats are being allocated and given study visa to pursue graduate fegree program (in india it is doctorate program) in different discipline. Several consultancies are vaialble claiming IELTS and study visa for you be awared of any future manhandling or cheating rather try yourself by registering online and see the entire procedure or contact your family friends/senior to help you in this regard.Once you obtain the GRE/TOEFL/IELTS be ready to write a meaningful statement according to the available graduate positions and specializations in biology where you will see your cytogenetics as acommon interest from both side only then your application will be intertained further. After successful screeing you will be interviewed either telphonically or skype/videoconferencing etc then you will be intimated to process your study visa. Make sure you are given scholarship or bursery to support your cost of living and study otherwise difficult to survive there untill your family is not capable to bear the cost in dollors / euro/pounds etc. For subject matter you can talk to us Dr Manoj
Dear friend, many thanks for your question. Here you have not mentioned in which specialization you have done MSc cytogenetics, are you in medical or plant or general cytologist. Since you are MSc in cytogenetics, therefore you must be aware that for going abroad you have to pass certain examinations. These are GRE, TOEFL, IELTS. After passing these tests you can look for a good laboratory or group in any university or institute. There are many good groups who are working on cytogenetics.1. Prude University, USA2. University of Texas, USA3. Emory University, Atlanta, USA4. McGill University, Canada5. Indiana University, USA6. McMaster University, Canada7. University of Nebraska, USA8. Tokyo Medical and Dental University, Japan9. The University of Illinois, USA10. University of Connecticut, USAThe above mentioned universities offer cytogenetics specialization in human, plants and general aspects. You may choose the subject as per your choice. Here I would like to suggest that you may pursue PhD in cytogenetics by conducting research in it. It means, if you do not make it to admission in PhD in cytogenetics, even then you can pursue your research in cytogenetics field. Therefore, you may get admission in PhD molecular Biology, Cell Biology, Human Biology, Human Genetics, Genetics (Agricultural or General), Biotechnology, Genetic Engineering and many more disciplines.Since you are MSc in cytogenetics, therefore, here I would like to suggest you that you should publish your MSc research work into a good journal. It will help you to get admission in doctoral program. Infact the cytogenetics is the specialization in a subject, that you carry out doing research work on it. If you publish a couple of research papers on cytogenetics, then your dream of being cytologist or doing PhD in cytology will be fulfilled. This you may can do even by doing PhD in othet related subjects.Let me give you my example, I have done MSc and PhD in Microbiology from agricultural university, India. During my masters degree program, I have done research work on methanogenesis and during PhD program I have done research on plant-microbe-interaction aspects. For a couple of years I worked on plant-microbe-interaction aspects, later I switched over my research field and now I am working on Environmental Microbiology. I have guided and guiding students on environmental and bioremediation aspects. I do have now many research papers on environmental aspects.Therefore, you should target any university abroad for PhD in related subject but must carry out research work on cytogenetics.With all my best wishesGood Luck..
