Artificial life

... and chemical experiments, computer simulations, and purely theoretical endeavors. Processes occurring on molecular, social, and evolutionary scales are subject to investigation. The ultimate goal is to extract the logical form of living systems. Microelectronic technology and genetic ...

Biology

... encompasses a broad spectrum of academic fields that are often viewed as independent disciplines. Together, they study life over a wide range of scales . Life is studied at the atomic and molecular scale in molecular biology , biochemistry , and molecular genetics . At the level of the ...

Biomechanics

... as continuous media. For example, at the tissue level, the arterial wall can be modeled as a continuum . This assumption breaks down when the length scales of interest approach the order of the microstructural details of the material. The basic postulates of continuum mechanics are conservation of linear ...

Herpetology

... eggs or birth of young. Their skins have many glands and are often toxic. Reptiles, by contrast, have a dry watertight skin, usually protected by scales , that normally has few if any glands.
