It's always a good idea to keep current with the latest advances in biology. Here are three places to get you started:
"Published biweekly, Cell includes original research articles of exceptional significance in areas including molecular biology, biochemistry, cancer research, cell biology, developmental biology, genetics, immunology, microbiology, neurobiology, plant biology, structural biology and virology.... Cell features topical minireview and review articles in which noted scientists discuss current progress in all areas of the life sciences."
"Nature is a weekly international journal publishing the finest peer-reviewed research in all fields of science and technology on the basis of its originality, importance, interdisciplinary interest, timeliness, accessibility, elegance and surprising conclusions."
"The world's leading journal of original scientific research, global news, and commentary."
Your Career in Biology
It's not too early to begin thinking about both your student and professional career in biology. Here are a few places to get you started:
"For hundreds of different types of jobs the Occupational Outlook Handbook tells you: the training and education needed, earnings, expected job prospects, and what workers do on the job."
Careers in the Biological Sciences (American Institute of Biological Sciences)
"Pursuing a career in biology can be immensely rewarding and exciting. Studying biology teaches us to ask questions, make observations, evaluate evidence, and solve problems.... Their work increases our understanding about the natural world in which we live and helps us address issues of personal well being and worldwide concern, such as environmental depletion, threats to human health, and maintaining viable and abundant food supplies."
Internships/Summer Opportunities in Biological Sciences (ND Career Center)
"Based on an annual survey, The Career Center has compiled a profile for each of the University’s major programs. The report lists self-reported summer experiences [for the last few years] obtained by Notre Dame students and illustrate that college majors rarely restrict summer internship options."
