Life is amazingly beautiful, and understanding and studying its inner workings create a deeper appreciation for this. There are so many interesting things that one can learn from the study of Biology, but learning about biology at the molecular level has recently peaked my interest. I’ve always found it amusing how when learning about various bodily systems such as respiration or digestion, these exact things are happening within us at real time, and even more interesting at the same time mind boggling is how most of our functions are dictated by the simplest of molecules, and even crazier how the smallest changes in lets say a DNA sequence or in the shape of a protein can make the biggest changes in our bodies. It’s difficult to imagine that a strong multicellular human being can be vulnerable just because a small change in the DNA base pairing had occurred which can be very fatal in some cases, but that’s what’s so amazing and intriguing about the molecular workings in our body. I also enjoy learning about genetics and evolution which also has a lot to do with Molecular biology.Learning about these things per se might not be easy to appreciate at first, because people don’t usually believe what they don’t see, however one eventually realizes that understanding things at the lowest of levels will guide us in understanding things at higher levels. I’ve seen how Molecular Biology has made a great impact in our society, especially in the medical side of it, and this is what really hooked me: the study of Molecular biology could possibly save lives.
Many obstacles and challenges have risen against varying organisms, but it’s easy to dismiss the fact that the challenge could be found deep within our systems. Knowing this, we might prevent or end any challenges we are faced with. So, I’m not just interested in gaining new knowledge, although it’s an amazing feeling to connect the dots of the molecular systems in our body, but I am also very much interested in the applications and benefits of learning about these molecular systems. show_chart ???????? ?? ?????: Having a very prestigious name, SMTB has raised my expectations namely to have many hands-on laboratory activities, to have fruitful interactions with experienced researchers, and to have opportunities to socialize with people of varying ages and with the same interest in molecular biology as I do.

I’ve mostly had experience working with laboratory protocols such as PCR, Gel Electrophoresis, and others and I enjoy getting bands after the long process of PCR, so I’m looking forward to working in the lab with these procedures. However, I’m hoping that I could learn more about bioinformatics and the computer science and engineering side of Molecular Biology, which at the moment don’t seem to be given much attention.
