Biology

Simply put, Biology is the study of life. As soon as chemical elements combine to create replicating complex molecules such as RNA or DNA, Biology steps in to cover the rest. From the most simple forms of early bacteria to the complex networks of redwood trees, Biology explores the relationship between living things as well as explores the mechanisms inside a living body which keep it alive.
