Life Science comprises all branches of science that study life – from microorganisms to human beings. While some might focus on a specific type of organism (for example botany studying plants) other can focus on aspects that are common to all life forms (such as genetics or anatomy). Discoveries in this filed are especially meaningful in improving the quality and standard of life and have applications in many different sectors, such as health, agriculture, food.
