But just what is bioscience? A simple way to define the biosciences is as a diverse group of industries and activities with a common link: they apply knowledge of the way in which plants, animals, and humans function. The biosciences span different markets and include manufacturing, services, and research activities. At OKBio, our mission covers all of these enterprises, and I look forward to sharing their stories with you as you learn why Bio Matters.
