Far from being a science restricted to universities and laboratories, the principles and findings of biological sciences have uses in everyday life.
Regardless of the area of specialization, in modern biology full understanding of a process requires integrating studies at many levels of organization: populations, individual organisms, organ systems, cells, and molecules. Accordingly, the day-to-day activities involve a variety of activities.
What does a scientist actually do on a daily basis? A question with too many answers because it depends on their area of science and the research aims, but I thought I’d give a brief description of some of the things I get up to in the lab.
Careers in biology can be of many different types. The following list attempts to name and define the major possibilities for careers.
