      Why Biotechnology & Biosciences?

      As we all know, Biotechnology and Biosciences (Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Microbiology, Genetics, Bioinformatics, etc.) sound very exciting for high school students. But, the difference between the high school curriculum and the college curriculum is pretty wide.

      Why Bioinformatics for High School Students?

      Biology in the 21st century is expanding from a purely laboratory-based science to an information-aided one.

      Recent developments in both molecular biology and information technology have made biological data much more readily available to scientists and to educational institutions, and this growing amount of data has created an “absolute requirement” for the use of computers to organize, analyze, and process such information. Know more about the scopes and applications of bioinformatics in medicine and biotechnology.

      Advantages of Exposure to Bioinformatics in High School

      Bioinformatics is used to understand and treat genetic conditions, discern evolutionary relationships, and learn about how diseased cells and/or proteins (e.g. cancer cells) differ from normal cells and/or proteins.

      According to the NCBI, “the ultimate goal of the field [bioinformatics] is to enable the discovery of new biological insights as well as to create a global perspective from which unifying principles in biology can be discerned”.

      With bioinformatics, it is possible to identify disease-associated genes and genetic markers. Additionally, bioinformatics also helps with the prediction of three-dimensional structures of protein & organism evolution; and design of new drugs; data sharing.

      Bioinformatics has been taught at the undergraduate and graduate levels since the 2000s. But, the efforts of introducing high school students to bioinformatics started only in 2012 – 2013.

      Why should High School Students attend Summer Schools?

      In today’s competitive world of academics, the benefits of attending a summer school program are abundant for young and aspiring students.

      There are so many social, cultural, and academic benefits, which are more far-reaching than one can expect from a normal course of study.

      Summer programs and online bootcamps have become very popular among curious and ambitious high school students.

      How Can Online Pre-College Summer Program on Biotechnology & Biosciences Help?

      The concept of such summer/winter program is like crash course programs from experts of their respective fields of specialization which can immensely help the students with their varied experience and knowledge.

      This in return helps students to focus and prepare for their respective careers. The interaction with the students and faculty members helps in developing communication, presentation, and leadership skills.

      The best parts about these programs are students can go beyond their syllabus and grasp knowledge which they can endure for a lifetime. It provides fantastic exposure to academia and industry as the experts share their life experiences, which come really handy for the students.

      Finally, it’s online. Right now, that’s the best possible option.

      Why Attend Summer Program on Biotech & Bio-Sciences?

      The field of Biology is very exciting, extremely dynamic, and ever-emerging. Though disciplines like biotechnology and biomedical engineering have been getting a lot of interest, the career scopes of biology after 12th remain largely esoteric and unexplored.

      Too Many Career Options in Biology

      There are many exciting career options in Biology. Some of the popular ones are as follows:

      • MBBS / BDS
      • Biotechnology / Specializations in Biological Sciences (e.g. Microbiology, Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Genetics, Bioinformatics etc.)
      • General Courses (e.g. BSc Botany, Zoology, Biology, etc.)
      • B.Pharm and other Allied Health Sciences
      • Food Science and Agriculture
      • Forensic Science
      • Emerging Options – Virology, Bioinformatics, Marine Biology, Astrobiology, etc.

      Exploring College-Level Biology and Evaluating Career Options Early is Beneficial for Long-Term Career

      There are many kids who enjoy Biology. But, they are not always sure of which career path to take. Be it MBBS, Forensic Science, or Biotechnology – nothing is easy.
