BIOLOGY AND CHEMISTRY AS A NATURAL SCIENCE Name Affiliate institution Biology and chemistry Introduction Since the existence of the two forms of sciences, biology and chemistry have been regarded as a natural science, biology being simply described as the study of life and chemistry the study of matter, its properties and structure. Biology is a discipline that has been in existence and itâ€™s responsible in addressing the basic concepts surrounding life, the physiological structures of the animal body, diseases, and the concept of classification, growth and development of the animals and plants and to some complex end, the origin of life. Due to this aspects, biology has remained to be an important discipline in world curriculum. Despite their popularity as forms of natural science, the two disciplines have many sub branches that have developed research units distributed globally (Motlhabane, 2013). Through the research stations and centers developed, there have been ongoing researches conducted with an aim of finding the solutions to simple issues surrounding the life of animals and plants. These researches are mainly on diseases and their spread and development. The dogma surrounding the natural sciences The concept of DNA molecules that are a complex form of biology is considered as the dogma surrounding biology as a natural science. DNA has been established to b
