Some key questions in Life Science are the origins of life  (abiogenesis), the origins of species and the nature of the relationships between species  (evolution and taxonomy), the nature of the chemical basis for life (biochemistry)and the biological coding of heredity and bioprocesses  (genetics, dna, rna).  Of course the most basic question is what characteristics define LIFE vs. things that are not living.
