Give him marble, he sees sculptor. Give him ink, he sees Mona Lisa. Give him a horse, he sees its anatomy. Give him cloths and he sees a parachute. That’s Leonardo Da Vinci, the man who saw the beauty in whatever he does.
The reason why many get bored at work is because they do not see the beauty in what they do!.
We love biology, we see beauty in it and that’s why we are willing to share it with you.
This post will be very helpful for those that love to study biology and need a guide on which field of biology they should go into.
Biology is the science of life and living things, and their evolution. Living things include plants, animals, fungi (such as mushrooms), and microorganisms such as bacteria and archaea.
However, the field on biology include the following:
Anatomy is the branch of biology that studies the physical structure of animals, plants and other organisms.
If you want to know more of the circulatory, muscular, nervous and skeletal structures of the animals as well as the dermal and vascular structures of plants. We advice you to consider studying anatomy.
Biochemistry is another beautiful field in biological science. It is the study of chemical substances, processes and reactions that occurs in living organisms.
For those that has deep passion for both biology and computer science, we advice that you consider studying Bioinformatics: this also know are computation biology. It is the use of information technology to collect, study and store biological data, especially the nuclei acid of living organisms
We know that you still like physics!. Why not consider biophysics?. Biophysics is the study of biological processes by applying the theories and methods traditionally employed in physics
Biotechnology is another beautiful field in biology which entails the use biological processes in industrial production. It deals with manipulation of genetics materials of living organisms to produce useful products for the use of man.
Plants are photosynthetic organisms that has cellulose cell walls, plants cannot move of their own accord, they grow in soil or water and usually has green leaves. The study of plants is called Botany. It’s a good option to consider if you would like to know more about plants.
ECOLOGY is another field of biology that deals with the study of the interactions of living organisms with one another and with the non-living elements of their environment.
ENVIRONMENTAL BIOLOGY is the study of the natural world, as a whole or in a particular area, especially as affected by human activity
GENETICS is another interesting part of biology that involves the study of genes and heredity.
IMMUNOLOGY is the study of the immune system, we advice that you study
MICROBIOLOGY is the study of organisms that too small to be seen with the naked eye and their beneficial and harmful interactions with other living things
MOLECULAR BIOLOGY: this is the branch of biology that deal with the study of the cell macromolecules such as DNA, RNA and proteins as well as their manipulation.
NEUROSCIENCE is the study of the nerve tissues and how they said learning and behavior.
PHARMACOLOGY is the study of the interactions between drugs and organisms
PHYSIOLOGY is the study of the functioning of living organisms
ZOOLOGY is the study of animals and their behaviors.
