Biology dealing with study of reproductive process, especially in higher animals. Closely related to reproductive endocrinology.

the study of energy transfer within and between cells, organisms, and their environment, including the underlying chemical reactions.
× 16
Set of methods to visualize certain properties (structure, gene expression, potential changes, etc.) of organisms or single cells.

the respiratory organ which allows the take-up of oxygen and the release of CO2. They are present in most animals which breathe air including many fish species.
× 16
The maintenance of a constant internal environment - for example temperature, carbon dioxide concentration or water concentration, etc. within an organism.

a widely-used tool for finding and evaluating DNA or protein sequences. Users can utilize either their own sequences or the genomes of hundreds of organisms. …
× 15 × 15
the process in which one parent cell divides into two daughter cells. The interiour (cytoplasm, DNA, mitchondria etc.) of the parent cell is divided between the two new cells.
× 15
A structural aberrancy in DNA, as opposed to a sequence change (mutation). Often caused by reactive species.
