Our understanding of processes occurring at the cellular and sub-cellular levels has led to a multitude of biological advances, with new developments occurring daily. To put it simply, molecular biology and the world of genetics have had profound effects on how we all live life on Earth in every conceivable way. If being a part of this cutting edge branch of biology is appealing to you, then you should consider the molecular/genetics emphasis.
