Anatomy & Physiology
Anatomy & Physiology is study of body parts and their functions in the body overall. In this combined field of study, anatomy refers to studying organisms' body structure, whereas physiology refers to their function.
Anthropology is the study of humans, both past and present, and the changes underwent over hundreds or thousands of years. This field encompasses physical changes, such as human evolution, as well as societal and cultural changes.
Biological organization
Biological organization is a conceptual, level-based heirarchy of biological structures and systems in which higher-level things are made up of the lower-level things. From smallest to largest, these levels are atomic, molecular, cellular, tissue, organ, organ system, organism, population, community, ecosystem, and the biosphere.
Biotechnology is a field of biology in which biological systems are used and/or modified to create new technologies or products. Genetic modification is a standard tool and may be used to create new pesticide-resistant crops or develop new biofuels.
Botany is the study of plants. Botany encompasses all aspects of plant science, such as taxonomy, classification, plant structure and function, reproduction, genetics and ecology.
Cell Biology
Cell Biology is the study of cells, both eukaryotic and prokaryotic. This field explores the cell cycle, reproduction, metabolism, cell-to-cell communication, and other cell-focused topics.
Ecology is a field of science that investigates how organisms live in and relate to their physical environment and how they relate to other organisms in their environment. Environmental conservation and sustainability are some common topics of study.
Epidemiology is the study of disease outbreak patterns, or other health-related issues, in terms of distribution, frequency and causation. Applications include the potential management or prevention of future outbreaks.
Evolution is the process of genetic and physical change that species undergo over successive generations in response to their environment and other selection pressures. This theory explains how all living things are descended, however distantly, from a common ancestor.
Forensic Science
Forensic Science involves the scientific analysis of crime scene evidence to determine the events of a crime. Forensic science includes analyzing biological evidence, such as DNA fingerprinting, and non-biological evidence, such as computer forensics.
Genetics is the study of genes, and how living things use genes to store biological information. Nucleic acids, usually DNA, passed from parent to offspring, provides molecular basis explaining how traits are inherited across successive generations.
Healthcare is a field of applied science focused on improving health of humans and animals. Healthcare science provides health care professionals, such as doctors and dentists, with protocols, knowledge and tools needed to prevent, treat, diagnose, or cure disease, injury or other health-related issues.
Immunology is the study of the immune system, which defends an organism against bacteria, viruses and other disease-causing agents. Understanding how immune systems prevent, identify, and fight-off pathogens has many applications, such as vaccine development.
Kinesiology studies the physiology of body movement and unlocks the mechanics that underpin walking, sprinting, and other physical activities. Applications include physical rehabilitation or exercise program development.
Marine biology
Marine Biology is the study of all living things that dwell in oceans, or other saltwater environments. All sea-based life from kelp to whales are studied under this discipline.
Medical biology
Medical Biology seeks to understand the physiology of disease, injury or other kinds of ill-health conditions. By understanding and identifying the mechanisms of disease pathologies, Medical Biology seeks to improve treatment and prevention options.
Microbiology studies lifeforms too small to see with the naked eye, including bacteria, viruses and protozoans. Microbiologists may study bacteria, yeast or other microbes to understand better their reproduction, life cycle, or role in causing disease.
Microscopy is a field of science that uses microscopes for scientific investigation. This technical field includes optical microscopes, such as compound light microscopes and X-ray microscopes, as well as electron scanning microscopes.
Neuroscience is the study of the nervous system, including the brain, nerves and spinal cord. Neuroscientists may investigate neurons and the emergent properties arising from their networks, such as human consciousness and abstract thinking.
Units and Measurement
Units and measurements allow for amounts to be quantified and compared with other measurements. For example, the mass of an item can be measured by using the unit gram.
Zoology is science of animals, such as reptiles, mammals or marsupials. Zoology includes studies of animal taxonomy and classification, reproduction, and animal behavior and ecology.
