Basic Science

Scientific inquiry is fundamental to understanding basic and complex biological processes. Different points of view are needed to understand these processes as the basis for all life. For example, the basic structure of most cells is the same in humans, animals, and plants, and the molecular machinery within the cell has many processes that are similar to those within increasingly complex organisms. The convergence of disciplines within the life sciences is a natural outcome of this foundational focus.
