Almost all sci fi books that I have read are focused on physics advancements, and the engineering derived from it.
I am currently delving more into evolutionary biology and chemistry, and would like a novel that explores the possibilities for the future for these branches of science.
I just started reading “children of time”, which scratches that evolutionary itch, but I’m looking for more.
EDIT: Thanks for so many replies already, I’ve got work to do!
I’m working a full time job for the time being, so I’ll only be doing whatever is available online or in the evenings. My job puts a lot of pressure on me, so I’m a bit worried about the extra workload I’m about to have. Does anyone have any tips for working full time in the biology field while simultaneously getting a biology degree? I have some downtime at work, but I use that to study for tests that I have to take to keep my job (and get pay bonuses). I have a habit of pushing myself into burnouts, but this is the first time I’ve been excited about anything in over a year. Any tips or words of caution would be appreciated!
I recently graduated and originally wanted to do environmental work but the covid recession has removed many of those jobs so I accepted a lab technician job. The pay is currently 44k and I have to work 6 p.m - 6 a.m which isn’t ideal but the company recently got bought out and everyone’s wages will be raised up a few dollars per hour which will raise me to 49k. I was wondering if this is a good wage starting out or if I should work this job and keep looking for something better?
I just finished Sophomore year in HS and I want to major in Bio for college, but I don't know what kind of careers are available if I finish college with a Bio degree. I'm still just learning about the whole college process so if anybody has any info that would be nice.
I'm not too educated in biology other than the occasional articles I read, and the highschool education I have. I work as a bagger and trimmer at a slaughterhouse. I trim nasty stuff off the carcasses; cysts, fecal matter, pieces of hide, etc. I also sometimes vaccum seal the finished cuts some days. Working there I've noticed certain things that I never would have expected. Here's some of the questions I have.
A lot of the fat from the lambs will melt in my hand and on my knife. Now I am grabbing and cutting through this meat so it's possible friction could generate some heat and cause some of the melting but I am not sure. It seems like a lot of the fat in the lambs should be liquid at the temperature their body stays at. My theory right now is that the... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hi everyone! The NUS Faculty of Science offers a major in Computational Biology, as a programme run out of the Science Dean's Office, rather than attached to a single department. Computational Biology is a bit of a niche major, since many people have not heard of the subject or considered it as a major when applying to university. Nonetheless, it's a great major, and students who graduate from it have lots of opportunities.
Students entering FOS can apply to read Computational Biology as a four year honours degree. Applications are open now, and I'm available to answer any of your questions.

My Study Tips as a 4.0 Senior in College
Hey guys so I wanted to make a post that I hope will help some of you with how to maximize studying efficiency and increase your chance at getting straight A’s in med school pre reqs and college in general.
Study tip 1: Prioritize Classes, each class and individual professor has a level of difficulty and importance to your overall college career. Prioritize classes with high importance (pre reqs and major requirements) over other less important classes. Additionally, prioritize classes that appear more difficult over those that are less difficult.
Study tip 2: Balance your schedule with 1-3 difficult classes and 1-2 moderate to easy classes. This will help you not get too overwhelmed.
Study tip 3: For clases which are heavy on memorization, space out studying the two weeks before a test one hour each day. As the exam approaches, study for longer stretches of time the week before, reviewing sections of material. The three days before an exam... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hello Reddit! I'm kinda new to this subreddit and been a somewhat lurker. However I come with a story that I would love to hear some outside perspectives.
So. I have a male Friend who we can call M. M is mostly a nice guy who I chatted at times over video games and such. However a few times we have butted heads over the argument of; I dont want kids and never will.
So on this occasion Me and M were playing some game when the topic came up again. Heres what kinda transpired.
Me: Hey man listen I know I dont want kids. I have seen many bratty kids that turned me off from the idea.
M: well...you kinda will want kids. It's in your like...nature.
Me: But I have thought it over and I definitely dont want them.
M: You say that now but 21 isnt a age where you shouldnt be dropping the idea of kids. Later on you will want them.
Me: getting annoyed I said no I wont. I have decided to be sterilized soon anyway.
M: what if you regret it?
Me: I wont.
M: well I know you will regret it... keep reading on reddit ➡
I am looking for book recommendations on books that are an interesting read on the topics of molecular biology and chemistry related fields.
I was just wondering if you guys have read any sci-fi books that explore biology in some way, maybe even going deep into some biological hypothesis.
29F. I have an MS degree in Microbiology/Molecular Biology with industry experience and am looking to move from the states to Germany next year (around June/July). I would love to get a job in the sciences/research. I also have a cat I plan on moving with me. What is the best way to go about it? Is it fairly difficult to move to Germany from here? Does anyone have any websites/helpful information on the process (if there is one)? I also want to be somewhat fluent by the time I get over there and was curious about what language learning programs/apps/etc were the most useful? Any advice in general?
Hopefully this post is in the right place! Thanks for your time and help! ♥️✨
I can’t be the only one. I’m a biology major aiming for grad school eventually because I love science and biology/chemistry. Unfortunately my school’s biology majors are 85% premed and 9/10 of my premed peers drive me CRAZY because most just see school as a means to an end and don’t value learning or science. Tbh just business majors who can do science. Anyone else feel this way?
I graduated last year with a BS in Biology and a minor in Psychology. I've been working in a chemistry lab over the last year to pay off my loans but the contract is ending. I want to get involved with either Psychedelic Research or a startup, but I don't know where to go or what to do because of Covid. I also can't decide if going back to school for a Masters is worth it if I haven't felt out either path. Either way I would likely have to move away from home which I am comfortable with. I was originally hoping to spend this next year teaching english abroad but that doesn't seem to be a possibility right now.
I dread course enrolment. Every year the majority of classes I want to take are already full and I’m somehow unable to enroll in at least half of them that actually do have space because they’re “reserved” even though I’m in bio and those are my REQUIRED courses. Then I have to email the department and wait a month for them to respond, essentially telling me to go fuck myself because the class is already full at that point anyways.
Since the vast majority of upper year classes are full, the department decides to email us saying “most 4th year classes are full... for some reason we have a high demand for these classes... aha... don’t worry it’s a normal part of being in 4th year lol! Don’t fucking email us. Make sure you refresh the course website every 3 minutes to see if someone might’ve dropped a class you need.”
Anyways, I guess I’ll see you guys in fish biology or something. Actually, I won’t because that class is full too.

Just a little post on how Pokemon would work in the real world.
I started this series many years ago and posted a few to the subreddit. I took my old ideas and tried to make it flow a little better. This is the first of the series. I'll do three or four of them and if it gets any traction I'll keep going.
Is this just how life works at the moment? I'm so nervous about losing this momentum and losing my love for biology. I spent the last 5 months applying for positions working with wildlife and conservation and I just got a rejection letter from a job I was so sure I had. Now I'm struggling to maintain my confidence in my abilities and I'm not really sure what to do. I know this is a long shot but I realized I could use some mentorship. If anyone has been in my position I'd love to chat and maybe get a little guidance.
Hi! If there are any students of biology or people working a career in biology, I would love to have a discussion about it. I want to know about things like your responsibilities, day to day activities, work life balance, your enjoyment of the work, etc. If you’re interested, comment here or send me a PM. I am thinking of a career in biology but I don’t know what specifically to do, so any information is welcome! Thanks!
It's like saying "there are no numbers below 0, it's basic math"
It is so blindingly clear to me that religion in general is made up and that God doesn't exist. When I became comfortable with that fact, I no longer felt bound to "proving" that the church isn't true. To myself or to anyone else. If God's not real then the Mormon church is sure as hell not truth.
It amazes me how little time I've spent in the past thinking about the real world around me - and not about a fairy tale. I want to cry when I realize that I know more about the Book of Mormon than I do about any branch of science.
Here's to forgetting all of that drivel and filling my mind with substance! If you have a favorite book, I am open to recommendations. I have a lot of ear-time for listening to books while I work.
Majoring in Geological Sciences and trying to pick which supporting science would be more helpful. Thanks in advance!
In his response to one of my comments u/AhmadiJutt tried to justify the notion of men being "defacto leaders", the insistence on misogynistic and discriminatory rules and predefined gender roles with supposed differences in biology. Since the views he is espousing are very common, not just among Ahamdis but also widely held in larger society, I felt the need to write a more detailed response and post it here to create a resource that can be referenced, if this topic comes up and people are misrepresenting the science.
Here his comment 1:

Why do Pro-lifers on the pro-life subreddit constantly say that pro-choicers no nothing about biology, as if the pro-life view has the monopoly over science and pro-choicers are ignorant to the facts?
No serious pro-choicer honestly believes that a fetus doesn't have unique human DNA. That isn't the question though, this isn't an issue about biology, it's an issue of morality.
