Biology is a branch of science that is associated with study of living organisms. Biology studies a ling organism's origin, structure, evolution, taxonomy, function, distribution and growth. A candidate who specializes in this field is known as a biologist. Biology is a huge field that involves various disciplines and sub-sections. Biology is applied in many fields such as agriculture, waste management, medicine, animal husbandry and wildlife. A biologist scientist has been involved in many researches such as industrial and agricultural processes and endeavors to improve medical.

Biomedical science is a division of science that deals with the study of life processes in order to develop an understanding of health and the methods for analyzing, diagnosing and treatment of diseases. Subjects enclosed are generally similar to the pre-clinical works of a medical degree, with the addition of molecular biology, the screening and evaluation of new drugs, and the relationship between the environment and health.

Life sciences is a vast field which encompass all areas of science that include the systematic study of living organisms such as human beings, plants and animals. Medicine and biology are the two sub-sections of life sciences. Life science is also interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary in its approach and study. Life scientists are usually involved in research and development and work in the laboratories.
