Postgraduate Biology and Life Sciences in Scotland

The Life Sciences consist of the areas of science which are concerned with the scientific study of living organisms,  microorganisms, plants, animals, and human beings as well as related areas like bioethics and  biology. The latter being the founding area of life sciences; technological advances in molecular biology and biotechnology have resulted in the development of specializations and new, sometimes interdisciplinary fields.
