Cell Biology

The study of cells is called cell biology.


Microbiology is the study of microscopic organisms, those being unicellular (single cell), multicellular (cell colony), or acellular (lacking cells).

Animal Physiology

Animal physiology is the study of how animals work, or more specifically the physical and chemical processes that occur within animals. Examples of these processes include gas exchange, blood and circulation, osmoregulation, digestion, nervous and muscle systems and endocrinology.

Animal Tissue Culture

Animal cell culture refers to the process by which animal cells are grown in a controlled artificial environment.


Biochemistry, sometimes called biological chemistry, is the study of chemical processes within and relating to living organisms. By controlling information flow through biochemical signaling and the flow of chemical energy through metabolism, biochemical processes give rise to the complexity of life.


The study of living organisms, divided into many specialized fields that cover their morphology, physiology, anatomy, behaviour, origin, and distribution.


The science of the application of the laws of physics to biological phenomena is biophysics.


Biostatistics is the branch of statistics that deals with data relating to living organisms.


The exploitation of biological processes for industrial and other purposes, especially the genetic manipulation of microorganisms for the production of antibiotics, hormones, etc.

Developmental Biology

Developmental biology is the study of the process by which organisms grow and develop. Modern developmental biology studies the genetic control of cell growth, differentiation and “morphogenesis,” which is the process that gives rise to tissues, organs and anatomy.

Dictionary of Life Sciences

Dictionary for any of several branches of science, such as biology, medicine, and ecology, that study the structural and functional organization of living organisms and their relationships to each other and the environment.

Environmental Biotechnology

Environmental biotechnology is biotechnology that is applied to and used to study the natural environment. Environmental biotechnology could also imply that one try to harness biological process for commercial uses and exploitation.


Evolution is defined as the process of growth and development or the theory that organisms have grown and developed from past organisms.

Fermentation Biotechnology

Fermentation is an energy-yielding anaerobic metabolic process in which organisms convert nutrients (typically carbohydrates) to alcohols and acids (lactic acid and acetic acid). Fermentation is perhaps the most ancient biotechnological discovery.


Genetics is the study of genes, genetic variation, and heredity (inherited characteristics) in living organisms.


Immunology is a branch of biology that covers the study of immune systems in all organisms.

Intellectual Property Rights

Intellectual property rights refers to the general term for the assignment of property rights through patents, copyrights and trademarks. These property rights allow the holder to exercise a monopoly on the use of the item for a specified period.

Medical Biotechnology

Medical Biotechnology is the use of living cells and cell materials to research and produce pharmaceutical and diagnostic products that help treat and prevent human diseases.


Books which do not fall in any category are set here.

Molecular Biology

The branch of biology that deals with the nature of biological phenomena at the molecular level through the study of DNA and RNA, proteins, and other macromolecules involved in genetic information and cell function, characteristically making use of advanced tools and techniques of separation, manipulation, imaging, and analysis.


Nanotechnology is science, engineering, and technology conducted at the nanoscale, which is about 1 to 100 nanometers. Physicist Richard Feynman, the father of nanotechnology.

Plant Biotechnology

Plant biotechnology is a scientific technique that adapts plants for specific purposes by cross-breeding, extending their growing seasons, adjusting height, color and texture and several other mechanisms. The purpose of it is creating reliable and sustainable food sources for populations around the world, or scientific and medical research.

Plant Physiology

Plant physiology is a subdiscipline of botany concerned with the functioning, or physiology, of plants.


Experiments and practicals performed in the branches of science that involve the scientific study of living organisms – such as microorganisms, plants, animals, and human beings – as well as related considerations like bioethics.

Recombinant DNA Technology

Recombinant DNA technology: A series of procedures that are used to join together (recombine) DNA segments. A recombinant DNA molecule is constructed from segments of two or more different DNA molecules.

Stem Cell Biology

Stem cells are undifferentiated biological cells that can differentiate into specialized cells and can divide (through mitosis) to produce more stem cells. They are found in multicellular organisms. Study of stem cells carried out under stem cell biology.

Tools and Techniques

Basic tools and techniques of biotechnology includes isolation of DNA, protein etc. use of restriction enzymes, ligases, cloning and expression vectors, gel electrophoresis, PCR, southern blotting, northern blotting, western blotting, microarray, DNA sequencing, dot and slot blots, construction screening of genomic and cDNA libraries etc…


General aptitude and other aptitude books which contain knowledge about numerical abilities etc.

MCQ Books

Books containing multiple choice questions for practice of various exams viz., CSIR NET Life Science, ICMR, DBT and other NET/JRF exams.


Ecology is study of interaction between biotic and abiotic components.
