Biology is the natural science that studies life and living organisms, including their physical structure, chemical composition, function, development and evolution.

Cell (biology)

The cell (from Latin cella, meaning "small room") is the basic structural, functional, and biological unit of all known living organisms.

Circadian rhythm

A circadian rhythm is any biological process that displays an endogenous, entrainable oscillation of about 24 hours.

Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is a thread-like chain of nucleotides carrying the genetic instructions used in the growth, development, functioning and reproduction of all known living organisms and many viruses.

Endocrine system

The endocrine system is a chemical messenger system consisting of hormones, the group of glands of an organism that carry those hormones directly into the circulatory system to be carried towards distant target organs, and the feedback loops of homeostasis that the hormones drive.

Endogeneity (econometrics)

In econometrics, endogeneity broadly refers to situations in which an explanatory variable is correlated with the error term.

Endogenous growth theory

Endogenous growth theory holds that economic growth is primarily the result of endogenous and not external forces.

Endogenous preferences

Endogenous preferences are preferences that cannot be taken as given, but are affected by individual internal responses to the external state of affairs.

Endogenous viral element

An endogenous viral element (EVE) is a DNA sequence derived from a virus, and present within the germline of a non-viral organism.

In a variety of contexts, exogeny or exogeneity is the fact of an action or object originating externally.

In the fields of molecular biology and genetics, a genome is the genetic material of an organism.

Germ cell

A germ cell is any biological cell that gives rise to the gametes of an organism that reproduces sexually.

New!!: Endogeny (biology) and Germ cell · See more »


In biology and genetics, the germline in a multicellular organism is the population of its bodily cells that are so differentiated or segregated that in the usual processes of reproduction they may pass on their genetic material to the progeny.

Homeostasis is the tendency of organisms to auto-regulate and maintain their internal environment in a stable state.

Menstrual cycle

The menstrual cycle is the regular natural change that occurs in the female reproductive system (specifically the uterus and ovaries) that makes pregnancy possible.

Nucleic acid sequence

A nucleic acid sequence is a succession of letters that indicate the order of nucleotides forming alleles within a DNA (using GACT) or RNA (GACU) molecule.

In biology, an organism (from Greek: ὀργανισμός, organismos) is any individual entity that exhibits the properties of life.

A prokaryote is a unicellular organism that lacks a membrane-bound nucleus, mitochondria, or any other membrane-bound organelle.

A provirus is a virus genome that is integrated into the DNA of a host cell.

Senescence or biological ageing is the gradual deterioration of function characteristic of most complex lifeforms, arguably found in all biological kingdoms, that on the level of the organism increases mortality after maturation.

Tissue (biology)

In biology, tissue is a cellular organizational level between cells and a complete organ.

New!!: Endogeny (biology) and Tissue (biology) · See more »

Transcription factor

In molecular biology, a transcription factor (TF) (or sequence-specific DNA-binding factor) is a protein that controls the rate of transcription of genetic information from DNA to messenger RNA, by binding to a specific DNA sequence.
