Molecular Biotechnology

Molecular biology is the study of molecular underpinnings of the processes of replication, transcription, translation, and cell function. The central dogma of molecular biology where genetic material is transcribed into RNA and then translated into protein, despite being oversimplified, still provides a good starting point for understanding the field. The picture has been revised in light of emerging novel roles for RNA.Much of molecular biology is quantitative, and recently much work has been done at its interface with computer science in bioinformatics and computational biology. Where molecular techniques are used to infer historical attributes of populations or species, as in fields in evolutionary biology such as population genetics and phylogenetic. There is also a long tradition of studying biomolecules "from the ground up" in biophysics.
