Biology needs to be understood; its principles touch our lives in more ways than we can imagine. We are aware that progress in biology has led to newer crops and better health care methodologies, which has increased our lifespan and quality of life. Biology has seen great progress in the last 75 years, with miracles like test tube babies and the possibility of stem cells being able to regenerate full body parts. Nano sensors and its applications have impacted medical science, pollution detection, and microbial identification among others.
Physicists, Chemists, Mathematicians, Engineers have all contributed enormously towards these biological inventions and discoveries. Enlisted below are a few roles that non-biologists have in biological sciences. A Computer scientist will be able to contribute better to artificial intelligence & bioinformatics, a Civil engineer will be able to contribute better to sanitation and effluent treatment facilities, an Architect will be able to contribute better to more sustainable and green buildings plans, a Manager will be able to contribute better to pandemic mitigating solutions and a Media/advertising person will be able to correctly position a number of consumer products with their knowledge of biological sciences.
