The life sciences comprise the fields of science that involve the scientific study of living organisms, such as
microorganisms, 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.
Life Sciences is helpful in improving the quality and standard of Life. It has applications in health, agriculture,
medicine, pharmaceutical industry and food science industry.
