Biological science laboratory technicians can perform a wide range of tasks depending on the type of biological laboratory in which they are employed. A botany lab, for example, will require that the laboratory technician properly care for and manage the plants being studied at the laboratory. The laboratory technician would be responsible for planting seeds, watering plants, maintaining their health and aiding in their reproduction if necessary. The technician would also perform experiments on the plants to fulfill the purposes and studies of the laboratory.
