ASCB is an inclusive, international community of biologists studying the cell, the fundamental unit of life. It covers all aspect of the study of living creatures like occurrence, classification, ecology, economic importance, external form, organization, internal structure, nutrition, health and other body functions, reproduction, life history, inheritance and origin. It is broken down into many fields, reflecting the complexity of life from the atoms and molecules of biochemistry to the interactions of millions of organisms in ecology.
Graduate students from Cristescu Lab collecting environmental DNA at the Gault Nature Reserve, Mount Saint Hilaire. Biology: A natural science concerned with the study of life and living organisms. The branch of science which deals with the study of cells and their organelles. The College of Science Biology program provides students with a broad understanding of the organization and processes of life, from molecules and cells through tissues and organs, to populations, ecosystems, and evolution.
This broad base of knowledge gives you the ability to succeed in any arena calling for biological expertise: teaching at all levels; academic, government, private, and industrial research; science journalism and law; professional fields such as medicine, veterinary medicine, dentistry, and optometry; allied health areas such as physical and occupational therapy; and graduate study. For the very first humans, knowledge about plant and animal meant the difference between life or death.
This special issue addresses a broad spectrum of biological problems in non-model organisms and highlights the utility of genome editing across levels of complexity from development and physiology to behaviour and evolution. The field of biology studies all aspects of life from sub-cellular processes to planetary ecosystems. Biology definition: the branch of science that primarily deals with structure, function, growth, evolution, and distribution of organisms.
Traditionally, they are grouped by the type of organism being studied: botany, the study of plants; zoology, the study of animals; and microbiology, the study of microorganisms. Biology is the branch of science that primarily deals with the structure , function , growth , evolution , and distribution of organisms As a science, it is a methodological study of life and living things It determines verifiable facts or formulates theories based on experimental findings on living things by applying the scientific method An expert in this field is called a biologist.
We are committed to providing students with a broad exposure to biological processes and systems and a deep understanding of biology at environmental, organismal, cellular, and molecular levels. The options system in the second and third years allows students to study either a general background encompassing a comprehensive range of topics, or specialise in detailed aspects of animals, plants, cells or ecology.
