Sub-Theme 6.1. Biosciences Research
The main aim of this subtheme is to explore and document biodiversity resources; to advance fundamental understanding of complex biological processes; to generate knowledge that alleviate problems of climate change, food security and health; and to generate bioscience knowledge and technologies that may contribute to production of bio-fuels and industrial materials from novel biological sources.
Bioscience research sub-theme covers studying of organisms from molecular and cellular levels up to the whole organism, population, and ecosystem. Research under this sub-theme focuses on systematics, diversity, physiology, ecology and genetics of plants, animals, microbes, and tools and technologies underpinning biological research.
