Study Biology in Sweden

Studying Biology

Biology is the classical natural science that studies life or, more specifically, all forms of living organisms. The foundations of modern biology are cell theory, evolution, genetics, homeostasis and energy. Branches of biology are practiced in science laboratories by Master degree graduates in biology.
