Common Terms of Life Science
The life science industry changes with the emergence of new technologies. There are multiple terms, acronyms, abbreviations, terminologies of life science. As per research, around 450 life science terms are available. Let us consider some terms from the following life science glossary. Active transport - Materials move through a membrane due to this process of active transport. It happens by using energies. Antibody - It is a protein that attacks specific unknown materials. Some white blood cells produce these antibodies. Binary fission - It is a kind of asexual reproduction. It reproduces some unicellular organisms. In this process, genetic material and two independent cells came into being. On cell division, make these two cells as each one is a copy of the original cell. The procedure of binary fission helps in the reproduction of prokaryotes like bacteria. Blood - It is fluid in the body by which cells get oxygen and other materials. It also helps in eliminating carbon dioxide and other waste material outside the body. Chlorophyll - It is a pigment in plants that gives green color to them. It is a light-absorbing chemical as it works by trapping energy from sunlight. This way, energy converts into chemical energy. You will find this pigment in the plant’s chloroplast and photosynthetic organisms of cells.
