A report from China states that they have found the method to edit human embryos. Any idea of the historic event? Your father, even though, a health enthusiast, may suffer from diabetes because of his genes (heredity). Now with this report, there will only be healthy babies, and any kind of hereditary diseases and dangerous disorders can be removed. In other words, the future babies are designer babies.
So, your job may include advising the parents on their children. The gene they have to edit or modify so as to give birth to a healthy offspring. You may have to study bio-genetics or genetical engineering.
3. Synthetic Protein Designer
Years ago, your ancestors did not know farming, so they hunted for food in the form of meat from animals. Now, even with a civilized population, there are/will be meat eaters. In fact, the demand for meat is more than the production. The main reason, shortage of resources for livestock. But, humankind has always remodified itself according to Mother Nature. This time, there are start-ups such as Modern Meadow /Beyond Meat which has taken up the challenge via in vitro and alternative substitution to meat. If the innovations become a success, then the demand for proteins and meat sources will be met, but it will lead to the rise of a new industry. You may have to study a new branch such as animal farming, biotechnology and microbiology.
4. De-extinction Zoologist
The greed of humans has surpassed even the advancements in technology. No, we are not talking about the animals who have gone extinct as the dinosaurs or mammoths due to change in climate. The focus is on animals who have become extinct because their skin or body organs can be sold in millions. In the future, you may be part of a team that can help restore the environment for the species on the verge of extinction. This job will be a challenge as you will have to negotiate with minimum resources. For example, in the entire globe, if you have only four Samba deer, you need to recreate an environment where the population has to grow in numbers. Interested? Read the job title once again.
