Some of the most significant advances in molecular biology have relied upon the methodology of genetics. The same statement may be made concerning our understanding of immunological phenomena.
My interests span biology, though sometimes I feel like an anachronism, somebody from the Victorian era when there weren't so many boundaries dividing the sciences.
Vilayanur S. Ramachandran
I like writing about biology, not doing it.
I have a B.S. in Biology from MIT, an M.Sc. in Human Biology and a Ph.D. in Biological Anthropology from Oxford University, and an M.D. from Harvard Medical School. I never intended for so many degrees, but I enjoyed getting them all.
There are kids going into chemistry and biology because of 'CSI.'
I started working on ribosomes when I was a post doc, in 1978, when it would have been impossible, really, to solve it. But, it was just a fundamental problem in biology.
I was in the military, and then I went to university to study biology.
Some cultural phenomena bear a striking resemblance to the cells of cell biology, actively preserving themselves in their social environments, finding the nutrients they need and fending off the causes of their dissolution.
I went into science, ending up with a Ph.D. in cell biology, but along the way I found out that experimental science involves many hours and days and nights of laboratory work, which is a lot like washing dishes, only a little more challenging. I was too impatient, and maybe a little too sloppy, for it.
Culture is how biology responds and makes its living conditions better.
C. J. Cherryh
The concepts of biochemical genetics have already been, and will undoubtedly continue to be, significant in broader areas of biology.
Edward Lawrie Tatum
I'm trying to figure out the biology of dinosaurs and what they were like as living creatures.
