Life Sciences

The life sciences comprise the fields of science that involve the scientific study of living organisms, such as plants, animals, and human beings, as well as related considerations like bioethics. While biology remains the centerpiece of the life sciences, technological advances in molecular biology and biotechnology have led to a burgeoning of specializations and new, often interdisciplinary, fields.

Famous quotes containing the words sciences and/or life:

    Letting a hundred flowers blossom and a hundred schools of thought contend is the policy for promoting the progress of the arts and the sciences and a flourishing culture in our land.
    Mao Zedong (1893–1976)

    A moment that gave not only itself, but
    Also the means of keeping it, of not turning to dust
    Or gestures somewhere up ahead
    But of becoming complicated like the torrent
    In new dark passages, tears and laughter which
    Are a sign of life, of distant life in this case.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
