Biological processes are the processes vital for a living organism to live. Biological processes are made up of any number of chemical reactions or other events that results in a transformation.

Regulation of biological processes occurs where any process is modulated in its frequency, rate or extent. Biological processes are regulated by many means; examples include the control of gene expression, protein modification or interaction with a protein or substrate molecule.
