Cellular Biologist vs.
Molecular Biologist compare What is cellular biology? Cellular Biologist Cellular biology is a type of biology that studies the basic unit of life... THE CELL. cell anatomy
cell division
cell respiration
cell death
active/passive transport
cell signaling
DNA repair
Metabolism genetics
molecular biology
gene expression How do I Prepare to
Become a Cellular Biologist? high school AP science
AP math
Trigonometry college Cell behavior
Cell longevity
Plant/animal cells
cell anatomy
genes after college Master's Degree
aptitude test
graduate school
Doctoral Degree What should I know
how to do? -Grow a controlled culture
-Ensure that a contamination doesn't occur
-Determine genetic composition
-attention to detail
-Work in a variety of setting
-find patterns in genetic information Molecular Biologist what is molecular biology? Molecular biology is the study
of life at the molecular level. -Interactions and regulations of/between the different types of DNA, RNA, and protein biosynthesis
-Replication, transcription, and translation of genetic material -cells
-Genetics What does a cellular biologist do? STUDY CELLS! cell inteactions
between other
cells/ the environment cellular and atomic
composition. experiment to learn the nature of cells observe the processes and structures
that occur/ exist within a cell structure and fuction compare similarities
between different cells the purpose of proteins life cycle, division, and death single-celled organisms like bacteria and protozoa specialized cells in
multicellular organisms a varity of cell processes what should I know how to do? How do I prepare? What does a molecular biologist do? analyze molecular aspects of genetics Study how molecular chains connect humans to the first living things how biological aspects of life forms are passed from generation to genereation works with microscopic life forms work with gene transfer skills required must be analytical
expert chemist and geneticist
have attention to detail
computer skills
able to handle stress
able to perform tasks in a precise manner
DNA techniques: able to use a microscope
liquid chromatography
thermal cycler high school AP level:
math college AP chemistry
organic chemistry
molecular biology
linear algrbra
evolutionary biology
multi-variable calc
independent lab work

after college You will be assinged to a mentoring professor who will
help with your degree and researh focus. after this, you will recieve a master's degree PhD from doctoral program Both Cellular and Molecular Cellular Biology Molecular Biology Salary: $35,809-$61,877/year Salary:$45,972-$77,110/year Courses: high school: AP science, AP math, Biology, Physics college: Chemistry, Genetics, Cellular Biology, Cell Anatomy Both majors also have the opportunity for a Master's Degree,
and a Doctoral Program (PhD). College Courses:
Cell Behavior
Cell Longevity
College Courses:
Evolutionary Biology
Multivariable Calculus
Organic Chemistry Examples of Career Paths:
Professor/ Teaching job
Doctor/ Medical Researcher
Agricultural work
Biotech Company
Food and Drink Company
Industrial lab work
Research for an oil company Examples of Career Paths:
Assisting in discovering the causes of certain diseases
Improving agricultural crops
Developing drugs and vaccines
Improving the Environment
You should be able to: easily use a microscope
work well in a lab setting THE EXPERTS Molecular Cellular Peter Weinstock Studied energy metabolism and how calories are used in the body through genetic engineering of mutant mice. He took courses in Molecular Biology, Cellular Biology, Grant Writing, Endocrinology, Scientific Technique and Human Physiology.
In college, he also needed to prepare a thesis and perform many experiments.
Warren Levy His work focused on excelerating bone growth in humans. He founded the company Unigene Laboratories to help develop a medicine for osteoperosis. He has a Chemistry degree, a PhD in Chemistry and Molecular Biology, and he also had business and finance training. Studies DNA Studies structure of the cell Different from cellular biology because it focuses more on the study of DNA Going into college/ Deciding whether to major in cellular biology or mollecular biology..... Am I ready to:
1.Balance lectures with lab work
2.Work in study groups with other students
3.Work outside class to complete experiments
4.Conduct research independently and with a faculty member Cellular Biology It helps to be into math and chemistry and looking through a microscope Looking at colleges for cellular biology: 1.Will you be able to focus your major on either cellular biology or biochemistry?
2.What kind of access will you have to lab equiptment
3.What kind of opportunities will you have for independent research and internships? In cell biology, you’ll study the cell as the basic unit of life. You will learn about the processes that all types of cells perform, but you will also look at specific functions and capabilities of particular types of cells, like blood cells or nerve cells. Much of your work will involve basic chemistry, biology, and physics.

Molecular Biology Am I Ready to: Work with other students to understand difficult problems?
Balance lab work with lecture courses?
Spend time outside of class doing research and reading journals?
Spend time on a computer, recording and analyzing data?
Looking at Colleges for Molecular Biology: Does the program focus more on preparing students for medical school or the biotechnology industry? Which direction most interests you?
What lab equipment will you have access to?
Will you be able to conduct your own research?
How much research work will you be able to do with professors? In an introductory molecular biology course, you’ll learn the basics: what a cell is, how it’s constructed, and how it does what it needs to do, all based on its chemistry. You’ll learn about the chemical properties of macromolecules, which are large molecules like proteins and nucleic acids that tell the cell what to do. You’ll also learn how enzymes and DNA work.
