"LIVING BIG AT OTHERS' EXPENSE: THE MODUS OPERANDI OF THE PARASITIC MODE OF LIFE"

156th

Parasites are a very successful group. They have successfully invaded all living organisms (Plants and Animals alike) and among animals they occupy almost every organ of the body. No matter how beautifully dressed you are today and irrespective of which part of this town you live, you are harbouring at least one parasite in your system.
Parasitology is a discipline of Biology which deals with the study of parasites, their hosts, and the relationship between them. As a biological discipline, the scope of parasitology is not determined by the organism or environment in question, but by their way of life.
This means, it forms a synthesis of other disciplines, and draws on techniques from other fields such as cell biology, bioinformatics, biochemistry, molecular biology, immunology, genetics, evolution and ecology.
