 Jiskha Homework Help - Science: Biology: Microbiologist
Microbiologist, as defined in Merriam Webster Dictionary, is a scientist who studies living organisms and infectious agents many of whom can only be seen with a microscope.
A person qualified to be a microbiologist has the upmost dedication apart from having a scientific and analytical temper, interest in research, observant attitude, ability to work in a team of professionals, good communication skills, and hard work.
Microbiologists spend most of their careers working in laboratories, which I believe is sort of dull.

 Area 51 Microbiologist Dr. Dan Burisch Ready To Talk
By splicing together components of various organisms, microbiologists today are able to create new living organism with specific outcomes, both in terms of target as well as resulting disease.
Burisch stated that microbiologists have a way of encoding their "signature" into the designer DNA they create, whether in short sequences or those long enough to encode an entire virus.
Because Burisch does not yet have such disclosure immunity granted, he spoke hypothetically, saying that if there were a microbiologist involved in such activities, that the microbiologist could place his signature on the resulting organism, unbeknownst to those authorizing the project.
