biosynthesis

Bodywork
A proprietary form of spiritual bodywork, which
combines features of bioenergetics and Reichian therapy. Developed by a David Boadella, “Bosynthesis” is based on the belief that 3 currents of energy flow through the body, arising from the embryonal germ cell layers, the ectoderm, the mesoderm and the endoderm. It posits that stresses began in utero affect emotions in later life and interrupt the flow of energy; the intent of the system is to reintegrate the flow of energy, by breathing techniques, emotional centring, grounding the posture, and shaping of experience through verbal communication and eye contact.

Cell biology
Synthesis of biomolecules by a living system.
 
Pharmacology
See Combinatorial biosynthesis.
 
Physiology
The production of proteins, lipids and carbohydrates by enzyme activity and physiologic processes within an organism; the synthesis of chemical compounds by enzymatic processes in living organisms.
