Structural and Molecular Biology
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. There are many methods followed by the biologist to determine the size of many identical molecules at the same time.
Molecular biology is a branch of biology that deals with the process of replication, transcription, translation and cell function. The center 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.
