TR060: Biological and Biomedical Sciences introduction
Welcome to the Biological and Biomedical Sciences Stream at Trinity College Dublin
Biology is the study of life in all its complexity and diversity. In Biology we explore how life first arose - the properties that distinguish living organisms from inert matter - how living organisms function and how the vast diversity of life forms was generated - how organisms reproduce themselves and how they interact both with each other and with the environment. It is the discipline of science that is fundamental to our understanding of the natural world and of our place within it and it is the foundation of modern medicine.
