Research Terminates at Infinity.
Knowledge has no limits:
Though, research at higher level has assumed immeasurable dimensions with its classification into different fields of study, yet , there are matters of mutual interest to give a comprehensive treatment to the subject under investigation. In surmounting the problems in respective areas of research, one is invariably forced to encroach other disciplines. There are a number of instances of joint ventures, involving scientists from divergent fields of study, to develop consensus to conclude. In the strict sense, Research at the top level has resisted to have been colonized or survive in isolation. The alliance of natural, life and social sciences has provided new dimensions leading to a new era of interactions between man and nature. Nature has always been compromising whenever man intellectually approached to share its secrets.
Study in genetics, has impact on a number of physical and biological sciences.
Research in crystallography is extensively applied by physicists, chemists and chemical engineers etc. alike.
