Structural biology is the study of molecular structure and dynamics of biological macro-molecules like proteins and nucleic acids, and how changes in their structures affect their function. Structural biology is the combination of the principles of molecular biology, biochemistry, and biophysics. Bio-molecules are too small to be viewed by even the advanced microscope. Large number of macromolecules assemblies have been reconstructed by fitting higher resolution crystal structures of individual components into lower resolution electron microscopy reconstruction of entire complex.

Molecular biology is a branch of biology that deals with the process of replication, transcription, translation and cell function. The centre of attraction is where DNA creates RNA and RNA creates protein. By applying the principles of biology, chemistry, and engineering, we can create plenty of chemicals, antibodies, proteins, and enzymes in a better manner. This leads the molecular biology into various disciplines like agricultural molecular biology, medical or pharmaceutical molecular biology, industrial molecular biology and environmental molecular biology.

Physical mapping mainly used in molecular biology used to examine the DNA molecules and construct the map showing the position of genes and sequencing features. Genome sequencing shows in the process of shot gun sequencing technique used to characterize each fragment and put each fragment into together. Top Down approach is the type of physical mapping was conducted exclusively by using the fingerprinting approach. Physical mapping consists of overlapping large insert clones was first constructed and carefully checked. After constructed the large insert clones the set of mapped clones was chosen that covers the genome with minimum overlap. Then chosen genome was sequenced segment by segment in orderly manner.

Cancer gene therapy approaches have benefited greatly from the utilization of molecular-based therapeutics. Of these, adenovirus-based interventions hold much promise as a platform for targeted therapeutic delivery to tumours. However, a barrier to this progression is the lack of native adenovirus receptor expression on a variety of cancer types. As such, any adenovirus-based cancer therapy must take into consideration retargeting the vector to non-native cellular surface receptors. Predicated upon the knowledge gained in native adenovirus biology, several strategies to transductionally retarget adenovirus have emerged. Herein, we describe the biological hurdles as well as strategies utilized in adenovirus transduction targeting, covering the progress of both adapter-based and genetic manipulation-based targeting. Additionally, we discuss recent translation of these targeting strategies into a clinical setting.
