    Please, give more context. Both can be correct depending on what you want to say precisely. – Anne Aunyme Apr 18 '16 at 15:02
  • Actually, that is all context I have. Its a medical procedure. – bngschmnd Apr 18 '16 at 15:10

    Is it the beginning of a sentence, or a title ? – Random Apr 18 '16 at 15:11
  • In French (not English), the DE is the notion, whereas the DES means the actual thing is done to objects. La Vie d'Abeille [the notion of the life of a bee, bee life]. La vie des abeilles, the (actual life) of bees. – Lambie Apr 18 '16 at 16:23

    Both are correct, they mean different things (see the duplicate question). @Lambie This isn't about “la vie d'abeille” but “la vie d'abeilles” vs “la vie des abeilles”. – Gilles 'SO nous est hostile' Apr 18 '16 at 16:30
