It is part highest developing club with China, Brazil, USSR and Mexico.
Growing Export market, booming and competitive domestic retail market has created growth of domestic market and increased demand for educated, qualified and professional people all over India. There is great demand for Indian engineering and other professionals all over the world, especially USA, UK, Australia and Europe.
Genetic Engineering professionals have opportunity not only of best salary packages and perks, but have scope to bring tangible change in society with sense of satisfaction and Pride. It is also profession where full play of creativity, ingenuity and challenges.
Genetic engineering is a laboratory technique used by scientists to change the DNA (Deoxy ribo Nucleic Acid) of living organisms. This wonderful branch of engineering science enables the human minds modifies the processes of life, birth, death and escape from certain congenital diseases. There is great scope in this field as the demand for genetic engineers is growing both in India and abroad.
Genetic engineers/scientists re-arrange the sequence of DNA. They also study how traits and characteristics are transmitted through the generations, and how genetic disorders are caused. Their research involves researching the causes and discovering potential cures if any.
The specialisation in genetic engineering is related to plants, animals and human beings. The plant genetic engineering is used to change the colour, size, texture etc of plants otherwise known as GM (Genetically Modified) foods. GE in humans can be to correct severe hereditary defects by introducing normal genes into cells in place of missing or defective ones. Genetic engineering is a complicated and most sophisticated branch of science, which is still in a process of development in our country.
There are several sectors that give employment to genetic engineers and professionals. They can be absorbed in medical and pharmaceutical industries, agricultural sectors and the research and development departments of government, semi-government and private sectors. The pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries offer the best opportunities to genetic engineers and professionals with handsome salaries apart from other perks and benefits.
