Data on the critical and distinctive skills necessary for those working in the Biochemistry, Biophysics, & Molecular Biology field from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Biochemistry, Biophysics, & Molecular Biology majors need many skills, but most especially Reading Comprehension. The revealed comparative advantage (RCA) shows that Biochemistry, Biophysics, & Molecular Biology majors need more than the average amount of Science, Programming, Technology Design, Quality Control Analysis, Operations Analysis, Mathematics, Operation Monitoring, Systems Analysis, Operation and Control, Systems Evaluation, Troubleshooting, Learning Strategies, Management of Material Resources, Writing, Complex Problem Solving, Time Management, Management of Financial Resources, Judgment and Decision Making, Critical Thinking, Active Learning, Instructing, Reading Comprehension, Speaking, Active Listening, Persuasion, Monitoring, Management of Personnel Resources, Equipment Selection, Negotiation, Social Perceptiveness, Coordination, Service Orientation, Repairing, Equipment Maintenance, and Installation.
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 Biochemistry, Biophysics, & 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 Science is very distinctive for majors, but the Reading Comprehension, Writing, Critical Thinking, Speaking, Active Listening, Complex Problem Solving, Judgment and Decision Making, Active Learning, Systems Analysis, Mathematics, Systems Evaluation, Time Management, Science, Monitoring, Learning Strategies, Instructing, Social Perceptiveness, Persuasion, Coordination, Quality Control Analysis, Management of Personnel Resources, Operations Analysis, Operation Monitoring, Service Orientation, Negotiation, Management of Material Resources, Management of Financial Resources, Operation and Control, Technology Design, Programming, Troubleshooting, Equipment Selection, Equipment Maintenance, Repairing, and Installation are the three most important skills for people in the field.
