Anatomy is the branch of biology that deals with the structure and organization of living things. The primary goal of anatomical science is to identify and characterize the physical or internal structure of an organism and any of its parts.
The word anatomy comes from the Greek term anatome, from ana-temnein, meaning to cut up. As indicated by the name, Anatomy is largely based on dissection. Anatomists study the biological structures at the level of the organs, tissue, cell or subcellular. Major branches of anatomy include comparative anatomy, and histology.
