UK & US: From Biology to Physics

  1. Jun 17, 2008 #1
    Hey there,

    I was wondering what people's opinion/advice on my problem would be.

    I've just finished a BSc degree in Genetics in a uni in the UK; but I'm starting to think that yes, while I'd like to work in research science, it's not the Biological field but the Physics field that I'd prefer.

    So where do I go from here? Can you work yourself in sideways to Physics, or will the total lack of undergrad Physics be a very big problem? Or are there Masters that you know of that you can take units in a new subject alone?

    Opinions/thoughts/comments/throwing rocks..?

    There's a lot of interesting (and probably easily accessible for you) work on 'network' approaches to the gemone/proteome/physiome/*ome. Are you talking about applying physics concepts to biology, or getting out of biology and doing physics research?
