Biology General

Biology, the study of life and living organisms, is a broad and rapidly-evolving topic. Studies in recent years have given us the ability to understand the very basic processes that underlie life from the levels of the intact organism, through cells and down to the molecular and sub-molecular levels. Understanding these processes requires knowledge, tools, and skills from the various fields of biology, medicine, pharmacology, bioinformatics, chemistry, physics, mathematics, and related fields. The Weizmann Institute of Science has several dozen research groups that utilize these and other approaches to understand the basis of life as we know it, combining diverse and inter-disciplinary research with the excellent infrastructure available in our campus....
