What have beans and genetics got to do with each other?
Hello fellow science enthusiasts!
I hope everyone is enjoying their time at Monash and reading Scapegoat weekly. It feels weird to think that this time last year I was doing my own research into graduate programs and here I am two months into one.
Two years ago, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science majoring in Genetics and Molecular Biology and now I work at KraftHeinz in the Marketing department.
Juno, sister and also wife of chief god Jupiter, has reached her husband/brother. Well, not really the goddess but NASA’s spacecraft, Juno, has reached the gas giant after a five year journey through our solar system and is currently in orbit. NASA has a series of short clips with Bill Nye explaining the journey of Juno, why Jupiter is such a fascinating planet and the challenges Juno had to face.
Tired of waking up for those 8 am lectures? Stressed out by the prospect of exams? Looking to contribute some new knowledge to the scientific community? If one or more of these apply to you, and you’ve completed the prerequisites listed here, then PHA3990 is for you!

The recent Australian Graduate Survey (AGS) reported that 51 per cent of the science graduates found full-time work within four months after completing their course, 17 percentage points below the national average. Based on this single data point, Andrew Norton of the Grattan Institute claimed that enrolling in science degrees is “risky”. He commented,
“If people think doing a Bachelor in Science will give them skills that are highly valued in the labour market then they should probably look at something else.”
