Molecular & Cellular Biology


I chose to major in Molecular and Cellular Biology because it is an interesting subject due to gaining knowledge of many cells that are produced. It is defined as understanding the interactions between the various systems of a cell, including the interactions between the different types of DNA, RNA and protein biosynthesis as well as learning how these interactions are regulated.

We all know that Cells and molecules are an important factor to life, because without it we wouldn’t have our DNA, or RNA. Each of these components react with other cells to create tissues and organs and many other parts that make up the human body, which is important. By saying that it’s a way to find some understanding of life and the process that each cells takes and that is something I find interesting every single day. In addition to that it helps people and I understand the kind of human diseases that are out in the world and how studying the cell is an important aspect to find cures.

Another reason I took interest into this major is because it’s a way to help people in their health and gain a new insight about the treatments that are out there for human diseases. Along with that, by helping people, it is a way to better the world. It’s like what my Comp 250 instructor says all time, “I want to change the world”, and for myself, by studying this subject, I believe I can change and better the world.

There are many people that saying this field of study is hard, which I agree with but the way I see it, is if you want to do the work and you put your mind to it, it’s really not that hard. Especially if something that catches your mind and that’s what you see yourself doing and that is me.
