cryobiology

The study of the effects of low temperatures on cells, tissues and organisms, including methods of using cold so as virtually to halt the processes of ageing and deterioration in living structures without causing serious damage. See also CRYOPRESERVATION.

cryobiology

the study of the effects of low temperatures on biological materials. Some tissues and cells remain viable when frozen and this makes it possible to preserve them for future use, particularly in the field of medicine e.g. sperm and tissue for grafting.
