Molecular biology is the study of biology at a molecular level. The field overlaps with other areas of biology and chemistry, particularly genetics and biochemistry. Molecular biology chiefly concerns itself with understanding the interactions between the various systems of a cell, including the interactions between DNA, RNA and protein biosynthesis as well as learning how these interactions are regulated.
A team of researchers has created the world’s first atlas of all the different types of cells in a reef-building stony coral that inhabits the Indo-Pacific oceans.
Researchers from UT Southwestern used a new kind of gene therapy to successfully treat mice with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), distinctively employing CRISPR-Cas9-based tools to restore a large section of the dystrophin protein missing in several DMD patients.
The human immune system comprises functionally specialized cellular defense mechanisms that protect the body against disease.
Researchers at the University of California, Davis, have created a genetically encoded sensor for detecting hallucinogenic substances.
According to the findings of a recent cell study, the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein can trigger long-term gene expression changes.
The research was conducted at the Department of Food Science at the University of Copenhagen (UCPH FOOD) with professor emeritus Lars Munck as coordinator and builds on earlier work since 1963 at Svaloef Plant Breeding Institute and the Carlsberg Laboratory.
Ecologists at the University of Cologne's Institute of Zoology have for the first time demonstrated the enormously high and also very specific species diversity of the deep sea in a comparison of 20 deep-sea basins in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
Researchers have discovered a possible connection between increased vulnerability to COVID-19 infection and exposure to organophosphate pesticides.
Researchers have discovered how a portion of a protein communicates with a cell’s membrane to control crucial intercellular communications.
The sustained development of plant sciences is highly significant. For instance, the food supply can be considered in this case.
Scientists have discovered a new species of bumblebees while investigating genetic diversity in bumblebees in the Rocky Mountains, United States.
Researchers have discovered how specific proteins ensure the rectification of errors introduced into the DNA when it replicates.
Scientists have identified a protein that could be crucial for inhibiting the most common human food poisoning, caused by bacteria, in the United States.
Researchers have explained mechanisms that play a role in maintaining the embryonic stem cells in the most optimized state for use in regenerative medicine.
A study headed by UCM reports that polymorphisms in gene TGFB1 and low plasma levels of protein TGFB1 serve as biomarkers for the gastric adenocarcinoma prognosis.
The latest discovery aboard the International Space Station could now enable scientists to develop the “fuel” to help plants endure such stressful conditions.
A new study explains an effort to create the most detailed and high-resolution map of gene regulation and chromosome architecture in yeast organisms.
A research team has looked inside a human cell to visualize a multi-subunit machine that is responsible for controlling the expression of genes.
An international research team has performed a new study that revealed that Arabidopsis thaliana plants create beta-cyclocitral when attacked by herbivores.
Could cactus pear become a major crop like soybeans and corn in the near future, and help provide a biofuel source, as well as a sustainable food and forage crop?
