Life Sciences

Life science deals with the diverse aspects of living organisms, ranging from genetics to the analysis of molecular, cellular and tissue components to the biological classification of groups of organisms. Wolfram|Alpha provides information about genomics, molecular biology, human anatomy, neuroscience and individual animals and plants.
