Lewenswetenskap | Life Sciences

Die lewenswetenskappe sluit dié takke van wetenskap in wat te doen het met die studie van lewende organismes – soos mikro-organismes, plante, diere en natuurlik mense – sowel as ander verwante areas van belang soos bio-etika. Terwyl biologie steeds die middelpunt van die lewenswetenskappe bly, het grootskaalse tegnologiese vooruit-gang, veral op die gebied van molekulêre biologie en biotegnologie gelei tot ‘n wye verskeidenheid van spesialiseringsgebiede.

The Life Sciences comprise the branches of science that involve the scientific study of living organisms – such as micro-organisms, plants, animals, and human beings – as well as related considerations such as bioethics. While biology remains the centerpiece of the life sciences, technological advances in molecular biology and biotechnology have led to a burgeoning of specialisations and interdisciplinary fields.
