I’ve studied a lot of detail in this major in genetics. There are many effective fundamental class through all these years. My grade could take me to go straight to doctoral degree of biotechnology at my department. But, unfortunately, we have quite a few research field of study. That is a result of my goal to study abroad at this moment.
