  Biologist - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A biologist is a scientist devoted to and producing results in biology through the study of organisms.
Biologists involved in basic research attempt to discover underlying mechanisms that govern how organisms work.
Biologists involved in applied research attempt to develop or improve medical, industrial or agricultural processes.

 Biology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
While botany encompasses the study of plants, zoology is the branch of science that is concerned about the study of animals and anthropology is the branch of biology to study human beings.
Biologists organize and analyze evolutionary relationships through various methods, including phylogenetics, phenetics, and cladistics (The major events in the evolution of life, as biologists currently understand them, are summarized on this evolutionary timeline).
Biologists generally regard the universality of the genetic code as definitive evidence in favor of the theory of universal common descent (UCD) for all bacteria, archaea, and eukaryotes (see: origin of life).

 Evolution is a Fact and a Theory
Biologists consider the existence of biological evolution to be a fact.
However, biologists readily admit that they are less certain of the exact mechanism of evolution; there are several theories of the mechanism of evolution.
No biologist today would think of submitting a paper entitled "New evidence for evolution;" it simply has not been an issue for a century.

 Review of Biologists Under Hitler
Of the 337 biologists active in 1933 (the remainder of the sample entered the profession later), Germany lost forty-five to expulsion (13 percent), and thirty thanks to the Nuremberg Laws.
Deichmann provides additional perspective by investigating the expelled biologists' research against the contemporary state of the field, and shows that the qualitative loss was great despite the low number of dismissals.
Among the biologists who remained in Germany, 53.2 percent of the sample joined the Nazi Party, a number lower than in the medical field, but comparable to that of psychology.

 Biological scientists
Marine biologists sometimes are mistakenly called oceanographers, but oceanography is the study of the physical characteristics of oceans and the ocean floor.
Zoologists and wildlife biologists also may collect and analyze biological data to determine the environmental effects of current and potential use of land and water areas.
Almost all marine biologists who do basic research have a Ph.D. Biological scientists are less likely to lose their jobs during recessions than are those in many other occupations because many are employed on long-term research projects.

 perl.com: Data Munging for Non-Programming Biologists
Experimental biologists increasingly face large sets of large files in often-incompatible formats, which they need to filter, reformat, merge, and otherwise munge (definition 3).
Other common solutions, such as teaching biologists Perl or creating graphical workflow managers, didn't seem to fully address the data manipulation problem especially for occasional users, who won't be munging every day.
Keeping the biologist in the loop this way gives him the best chance of applying the relevant data and algorithms to answer the right questions.

 U.S. official overrules biologists on salmon - Environment - MSNBC.com
SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Federal biologists evaluating the effects of shifting millions of gallons of water to Southern California from rivers in the north were ordered by their superiors to revise a conclusion that the plan would hurt endangered salmon, a newspaper reported Saturday.
Biologists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration initially found that the water project would harm fish in many rivers in Northern California, including salmon in the American River.
Agency biologists made some errors and “unsubstantiated conclusions” in their original draft, said James Lecky, an agency administrator in Long Beach who ordered the revisions.

Biologists are easy to tell from other scientists (see: chemist, physicist, geologist) because they have a tendency to keep pet mice that are bent on taking over the world.
In addition, biologists tend to wear glasses, collect dead insects, and abhor Michael Jackson.
Biologists have recently re-classed themselves as a different species following a recent biologist convention where they all noticed they had beards.

 Biologists: Get with the program!
Computer scientists and biologists are getting accustomed to working together, but they still think of their respective disciplines as separate.
In the past, biologists and chemists made improvements in their laboratory methods, making dramatic leaps in understanding, but also enabling other scientists to discover new information based on the improved techniques.
The future of bioinformatics rests on the biologists, and even while they collaborate with computer experts, biologists will need to become computer experts to make dramatic discoveries in the life sciences.

 Gene Expression: Physicists vs. biologists - cognitive smackdown
We all know of the prestige attached to molecular biologists and all their sundry subdomains, biophysics, biochemistry, molecular genetics, etc. I would argue that the rise of genomics and yes, in silico methodologies, is going to revolutionize evolutionary biology, as the bedrock upon with theory and prediction are built upon becomes progressively firmer.
Two of the population biologists who invented 20th century theoretical genetics, R.A. Fisher and J.B.S. Haldane were trained in mathematics, not biology (Sewall Wright was trained as a biologist, he picked up his mathematics later).
Indeed, at the 800 score level in math, the raw number of biologists and physicists are almost equal - because while 4.9% of biologists scored 800, 26.4% of physicists did so.

 Perl.com: Data Munging for Non-Programming Biologists
We're asking biologists to break a problem down into pieces--each of which is solvable using some set of tools--and then to string those tools together in the right order with the right parameters.
While many computational biologists focus on writing O(N) programs for sophisticated sequence analysis or gene expression studies, we're not ashamed to write glue instead; we solve the unglamorous problem of taking the output from their fancy programs and throwing it into tabular format, so that a biologist can study the results in Excel.
I'm all for that, of course, but experimental biologists need to spend much more of their time getting data (dissecting bee brains, say) than analyzing it, so they can't afford the time it takes to become programmers.

 C&EN: EDUCATION - EDUCATING BIOLOGISTS
Indeed, there are several reasons why the report should be required reading for everyone who is involved in teaching chemistry--and physics, math, and computer science--at the college and university level.
Nonetheless, a truism is that "much of modern biology has become increasingly chemical in character," the panel wrote, and the trend to using chemistry more in biomedical research will continue.
Breslow tells CandEN that the report has the best chance of having an impact if "the faculty in chemistry and biology departments meet together to discuss how best to accomplish the goals of the report." The report is available for free on the Web (http://www.nap.edu).

So a new breed of biologists is attempting to bring order to the hit-and-miss chaos of genetic engineering by bringing to biotechnology the same engineering strategies used to build computers, bridges and buildings.
The idea is to separate cells into their fundamental components and then rebuild new organisms, a much more complex way of genetic engineering.
Already, synthetic biologists have created a polio virus and another smaller virus by stitching together individual genes purchased from biotechnology companies.

After a microarray experiment or a BLAST search, hundreds or thousands of interesting gene names are revealed, but the average biologist has no clue as to the function of most of them.
Such a wiki would also be less susceptible to spam, as most users would be biologists.
A wiki on gene function, which utilizes the collective brain power of biologists around the world, would be an invaluable tool for biological sciences.

 AIBS Position Statements: AIBS Criticizes President's Statement on Intelligent Design
The majority of biologists utilize the theory of evolution in their work on a daily basis.
The scientific method requires generating hypotheses, testing the hypotheses with data, and drawing conclusions based on the data; this is the practice of scientists, including evolutionary biologists.
Intelligent design presumes complexity whose origins and pathways are not testable and that demand a "designer" to achieve.
