This download is a custom major. This means that you will need the MajorsMadeEasier mod by FrikaC installed in order to use the download in your game.
This is my final offering for the monthly themes - for February 2016's theme, "Into The Future". This is a Biotechnology major, which is available in two versions. One version is a normal EA major, which works like all of the in-game majors, and the other is designed to work with Cyjon's Semester Changes mod (and, if desired, my set of default replacement majors).

Biotechnology is "the exploitation of biological processes for industrial and other purposes, especially the genetic manipulation of micro-organisms for the production of antibiotics, hormones, etc." This major focusses on the use of genetic engineering and other science-y stuff to produce GMO crops. It seemed suitably future-focussed to me, hence why I decided that it worked well for this monthly theme.

The two versions of my Biotechnology major share a GUID, so you can only have one of them in your game. Basically, if you use Cyjon's Semester Changes, use the Cyjon version, and if you don't use Cyjon's Semester Changes, use the EA version. The GUID is unique to them, so they won't over-write anything else in your game. The major reuses the Natural Scientist career icon - see the attached picture if you're not sure what it looks like. I cloned the Biology major to make these, so they link to the following careers: Natural Science, Law Enforcement, Medicine, Education, Oceanography. I hope to eventually make a Biotechnology/Genetic Engineering career to go with these majors, but I ran out of time to make it before February ends! But we'll see what the future holds..... :-)
