The BioScience Reddit

Bioscience - any science that deals with the biological aspects of living organisms.

Biology - a natural science concerned with the study of life and living organisms, including their structure, function, growth, evolution, distribution, and taxonomy. Modern biology is a vast and eclectic field, composed of many branches and subdisciplines. However, despite the broad scope of biology, there are certain general and unifying concepts within it that govern all study and research, consolidating it into single, coherent fields. In general, biology recognizes the cell as the basic unit of life, genes as the basic unit of heredity, and evolution as the engine that propels the synthesis and creation of new species. It is also understood today that all organisms survive by consuming and transforming energy and by regulating their internal environment to maintain a stable and vital condition.

Subdisciplines of biology are defined by the scale at which organisms are studied, the kinds of organisms studied, and the methods used to study them: biochemistry examines the rudimentary chemistry of life; molecular biology studies the complex interactions among biological molecules; botany studies the biology of plants; cellular biology examines the basic building-block of all life, the cell; physiology examines the physical and chemical functions of tissues, organs, and organ systems of an organism; evolutionary biology examines the processes that produced the diversity of life; and ecology examines how organisms interact in their environment.

University Of Manchester VS University Of Glasgow

I have done my Bachelors of Science in Biotechnology as my majors, and have got accepted in both these unis (Manchester and Glasgow). I always wanted study biotechnology with some prospects of business management.

But, now its getting tough for me to select one of them, I have recipe an offer for MSc in Biotechnology and Management in Uni of Glasgow whereas In Uni of Manchester I have received and offer for MSc in Biotechnology and Enterprise.

If you have any idea about the quality of education in both the Universities as well as about the value of their graduates on a global market as well as that in the UK. It would be kind from your side to help me sort out this confusion.

Thank You.

Help with normalization strategy

Hey everyone, I have an important presentation soon and I am not sure about the best way to treat and represent my data. I have cell plate treated with multiple compounds in duplicate + vehicle control + Untreated control. I performed 3 measurements: baseline (before compound exposure), 72h after exposure and 6 days after exposure. Now I want to represent the data and show the changes over time for each condition. (My cell culture is very dynamic so I have quite some variability within the same plate due to differences in cell growth). Should I first normalize (divide) each well at 72h and 6D Timepoints against the same well in the baseline (before treatment) and afterwards normalize the resulting values against the vehicle control for each Timepoint? Is this correct or do you have any suggestions?

Thank you!!!

Resources for studying biological techniques and their applications??

Please suggest resources (YouTube, video lectures or sites) to study different tools and techniques used in molecular biology, biotechnology, cell biology research

It should give a brief idea about the technique and explain how they can be used to solve problems in biology

Trying to learn

Hi I have a buddy who’s a professor in this field and am looking to learn more about it so we can discuss it I was wondering what would be good resources to read through first?

Will taking Chondroitin and MSM hinder one's body's ability to produce its own?

Title. If someone takes compounds exogenously and they occur in the body already, for many of those compounds it does reduce the ability of the body to make its own. So does the same happen with Chondroitin and MSM? And is there proof?

If you took testosterone and produce testosterone, it will hurt your ability to produce testosterone. Same for estrogen.
