    Hey. I was wondering what should I do in college to prepare to work in the genetic engineering field. I'm asking like what major should I pick? What type of lab should I try to work in? I'm very interested in the genetic engineering or GM aspect of genetic research.

    Oh and I'm planning on attending the UW- Madison.

    Get an Honours degree in Molecular Genetics.

    if you have the qualifications, the medical end of this would seem interesting. there are others in Agriculture and in Engineering. medical products (equipment) are in great demands in nano tech, a field i study.

    UW, is a good choice and i went to Whitewater a very long time ago.
    living in Janesville, it was just closest for a want a be, teacher...
