I am a graduate of Dow University Of Health Sciences holding Bachelors of Dental Surgery. I also hold one minor - in Psychology. I am working as a Virtual Research Manager at an online firm and dealing with various dental specialties and psychological sciences. Where do I begin, well Research not only has allowed me to learn about a subject I am interested in on a more in-depth level, it has also taught me valuable critical thinking and problem solving skills (through experiment troubleshooting, thinking critically about data and their implications, making decisions about future experiments based on previous results). I have been into research from a couple of years and learned that its not about about believing factual things every time, when experiments don't work or you get results you were not expecting you just don't give up. Research requires an individual to learn to solve the problem, so investigate why things didn't work and what you could do next time to get a better outcome.

What is biology? Simply put, it is the study of life -- life in all of its grandeur. From the very small algae to the very large elephant, life has a certain wonder about it. With that in mind, how do we know if something is living? What are the characteristics of life? These are all very important questions with equally important answers.
Biology is a natural science concerned with the study of life and livingorganisms, including their structure, function, growth, evolution, distribution, and taxonomy. Modern biology is a vast and eclectic field, composed of many branches and subdisciplines. However, despite the broad scope of biology, there are certain general and unifying concepts within it that govern all study and research, consolidating it into single, coherent fields. In general, biology recognizes the cell as the basic unit of life, genes as the basic unit ofheredity, and evolution as the engine that propels the synthesis and creation of new species. It is also understood today that all organisms survive by consuming and transforming energy and by regulating their internal environment to maintain a stable and vital condition.
Subdisciplines of biology are defined by the scale at which organisms are studied, the kinds of organisms studied, and the methods used to study them:biochemistry examines the rudimentary chemistry of life; molecular biologystudies the complex interactions among biological molecules; botany studies the biology of plants; cellular biology examines the basic building-block of all life, the cell; physiology examines the physical and chemical functions oftissues, organs, and organ systems of an organism; evolutionary biology examines the processes that produced the diversity of life; and ecology examines how organisms interact in their environment.
