Genetic Survival
Genetic engineering is the future of humanity and what I believe to be or only chance of survival as a species, viruses and bacterium are adapting and evolving at alarming rates, to the point are medicines and vaccinations are becoming useless against the oncoming barrage. And because of this I wish to become a genetic and bioengineer. Through this path I would change the world by manipulating human genetics to help battle disease, mental illness and genetic disorders associated with abnormalities, through genetics I would try to prolong life and save humanity from the struggles and threats of tomorrow.
The steps I would take in making this dream a reality would be to take the very viruses that make us sick and destroy the genetic code in it (which is the bad guy), I would then replace the viral capsule with new DNA (or the good guy) to create a mutation that would act beneficially to the host. Mutations are most often birthed by viruses, this research would be done under a safe setting with years of research in advance of any human testing to make sure defects would be at a minimum.
Science though can only be furthered by what humanity deems moral at the time as a species, so because of this I will always dream and do what my fellow man considers right and moral.
Thank you for reading,
Wyatt Myers
