“Biology is defined as the study of living organisms, their origins, anatomy, morphology, physiology, behaviour, and distribution.”

Life is teeming in every corner of the world – from the frozen Arctics to the searing Sahara. And with over 8.7 million species documented till date, the world is that the only planet within the universe where life is understood to exist.

Advancements in technology have opened even more insights about life and its constituents. For instance, discoveries such as viruses have scrutinized traditional definitions and pushed scientists to look at life from a whole new perspective.
