Advances in Structural and Molecular Biology

Structural biology is the oldest of all biological disciplines and is still an expanding field. The main goal of structural biology is to achieve a complete understanding about the cellular structure in relation to the molecular mechanisms involved in the cellular processes. New insights are currently emerging into the macromolecular structures which involves in the signal transduction. It encompasses a full range of relationship from tissues to molecules. Structural biology has a very broad range and is highly diversified.

There have been several major advances in molecular biology in the past few years. New technologies either improve existing techniques or develop new approaches to old questions to generate information more quickly, easily, accurately or in a more easily repeatable fashion than existing method. Some of the most powerful new technologies include polymerase chain reaction (PCR) advances, “difference analysis” (that is, the discovery of different gene expression patterns between different cells), transgenic/gene knockout technology, and gene delivery to tissues/gene therapy.


Development of advanced technology helps in disease prevention and better treatment. The technology for drug design, tool development, and imaging technologies are the recent advancements in this field. The latest trends in this field are polymerase chain reaction(PCR), cycle sequencing, pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE), subtractive hybridizationoligoribonucleotide technology or automated DNA hybridization.
