One of my high school biology teachers told our "genetics/bacteriology/embryology" class that within 5-10 years, the field of genetics will be one of the most booming and in-demand work fields in the world. One day I want to study genetics and hopefully get a job within this field, but I have a few questions about it. First, is this true that genetics will be so in-demand in the near future, and if so, how? What kinds of jobs are going to to be/already are offered dealing with genetics? What can high school and college age kids do now to ensure getting this jobs in the near future? Do colleges offer majors in "genetics and genetic research"? If not, what do students major in to pursue a career in genetics, just general biology? If anyone can answer these questions I'll be extremely grateful. I'm seriously considering a career in this field because I love it, but I don't have a clue as to what's out there/what will be out there in a few years. Thanks!
