Molecular Biology

Molecular biologists study the fundamental functions of the Central Dogma of biology: how information stored, replicated and even mutated in DNA is regulated, repaired, persevered and transported via RNA into functional proteins, processes and system; and how those genes and proteins regulate every aspect of living organisms. From sequencing whole human genomes and precise genetic engendering of human genes to how environmental factors change (epi)genetic information passed through generations, molecular biologists use cutting edge technologies to understand the essentials of life.
