What role do applied and fundamental research play in biology?

The main goal of applied research is the discovery, interpretation and development of methods and systems for improving human knowledge in various industries. These methods solve social and practical problems.
Basic research makes it possible to know the laws that govern nature. These laws are studied “in pure form”, regardless of their possible use.

Remember: The process of learning a person lasts a lifetime. The value of the same knowledge for different people may be different, it is determined by their individual characteristics and needs. Therefore, knowledge is always needed at any age and position.
