>>11044043>implying some average cubicle slave has the same level of training as a researcher or medical professional
While it IS possible that some clerk can handle filing, data entry, and whatnot, there's a reason why biology research, or research in any field, typically requires an extra 4-6 yrs grad school. Same with vet school or med school. And that's not counting postdoc or fellowships.
Biology is an excessively broad field. >>11042913
pretty much shows how broad biology is. On top of that, each subfield of biology is still backed by a comprehensive depth of research.
I find it hard to believe some >average office clerk
would be able productively and cohesively compile the research body of ONE biological subfield, let alone integrate it with every other subfield. And if they did have the required specialist knowledge, then they wouldn't be some average clerk.
