Skills

Data on the critical and distinctive skills necessary for those working in the Cellular & Molecular Biology field from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Cellular & Molecular Biology majors need many skills, but most especially Reading Comprehension. The revealed comparative advantage (RCA) shows that Cellular & Molecular Biology majors need more than the average amount of Programming, Equipment Selection, and Science.

These two visualizations, one a radial chart and one a bar chart, show the same information, a rating of how necessary the following skills are for Cellular & Molecular Biology majors. Toggle between "value" and "RCA" to see the absolute rating of that skill (value) and the revealed comparative advantage (RCA), or how much greater or lesser that skill's rating is than the average. The longer the bar or the closer the line comes to the circumference of the circle, the more important that skill is. The importance of Programming is very distinctive for majors, but the Reading Comprehension, Science, and Active Learning are the three most important skills for people in the field.
