Biology is a natural science concerned with the study of life and living organisms, including their structure, function, growth, origin, evolution, distribution, and taxonomy. Biology is a vast subject containing many subdivisions, topics, and disciplines. Among the most important topics are five unifying principles that can be said to be the fundamental axioms of modern biology

DNA, or deoxyribonucleic acid, is the hereditary material in humans and almost all other organisms. Nearly every cell in a person’s body has the same DNA. Most DNA is located in the cell nucleus (where it is called nuclear DNA), but a small amount of DNA can also be found in the mitochondria (where it is called mitochondrial DNA or mtDNA).

ok so yes biology is the study of living organisms, but there is more. many people think that there is only one branch they think that science is only science but if you really know the branches you would be able to tell that when it comes to biology its not only the study of living things but thestudy of who we are what we are and not only but how to keep us safe from certain organisms :D

OK, but I think that all is still about living organisms, isn't it? :roll:

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
