They study different insects, their life cycle, and their negative effects on the environment. They identify ways of controlling insect growth and methods to cure the diseases they spread. Other biological technicians work in the field of energy alternatives, such as biofuels. As in other areas, these technicians aid in the data gathering, experiments, and maintaining of equipment used in the field. They may be involved, for example, in crunching data on a particular energy alternative, such as a new biofuel, to measure and rate the new biofuel against an existing fuel to help determine its 51 efficacy and economic viability.

Which certification to obtain depends on the specialty of the biological technician. For example, medical technologists, a subset of biological technician, can be certified through the American Medical Technologists organization. The American Society of Clinical Pathologists offers a certification program that is quite thorough. The certification requires that candidates pass a written exam and complete a fifty-week US military medical course. Volunteer Work and Internships Internships are readily available for those studying to become biological technicians.

Knowledge of federal regulations and requirements of the development of biofuels is also necessary. As with many science-based careers, biofuels developers will also work with a lot of technical equipment, including oxygen monitors, flow sensors, compound microscopes, mass spectrometers, as well as technical software. On the Job Employers A variety of entities are involved in the development of biofuels. The federal government, colleges and universities, large oil companies such as BP, and airline companies such as Boeing are all potential employers of biofuels developers.
