  • The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology received a double dose of excitement last month when not one, but two of its members were honored with Nobel Prizes. (asbmb.org)
  • Just two days later, ASBMB member Thomas Steitz, the Sterling professor of molecular biophysics and biochemistry, a professor of chemistry and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator at Yale University, also received a call from Stockholm informing him that he had been awarded one-third of the 2009 Nobel Prize in chemistry. (asbmb.org)
  • Some researchers now receiving Nobel Prizes began their research in the 1960s-1970s, an era when new molecular biology and biochemistry techniques had emerged. (ascb.org)
  • department
  • The good news began with the announcement that Carol Greider, a professor in the department of molecular biology and genetics at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, received one-third of the 2009 Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine, becoming one of 10 women to have won a Nobel in the category (and one of 40 overall). (asbmb.org)
  • This year's award is especially exciting as Rosbash and Hall share a history of teaching and research in Brandeis' biology department in addition to being the first long-term Brandeis faculty to win the Nobel Prize. (brandeis.edu)
  • You are not just an asset to the Structural Biology Department of the Weizmann but to Israel and - as recognized with this prize, to the world. (scienceblogs.com)
  • research
  • Steitz and his chemistry co-recipients, Venkatraman Ramakrishnan of the Medical Research Council Laboratory of Molecular Biology and Ada E. Yonath of the Weizmann Institute of Science, received the honor for their pioneering studies on a key cellular component and therapeutic drug target: the ribosome. (asbmb.org)
  • Cellular Biology
  • Nuclear function, cytoskeleton and cell membrane interactions, transport of cellular products between different organelles fits in the Cellular Biology category. (springer.com)
  • Announcing a Workshop on Methods in Molecular Biology at Oregon State University 1996 Offered by the Molecular and Cellular Biology Program Oregon State University Corvallis, Oregon (541) 737-3799 An intensive training course for graduate students, faculty and researchers in the biological and medical sciences The methods of molecular biology, in particular recombinant DNA work, have transformed research in the biological and medical sciences.

  • Laboratory
  • It is an essential laboratory procedure in the molecular cloning of DNA whereby DNA fragments are joined together to create recombinant DNA molecules, such as when a foreign DNA fragment is inserted into a plasmid. (wikipedia.org)
  • The DNA ligase from E. coli cannot ligate blunt-ended DNA except under conditions of molecular crowding, and it is therefore not normally used for ligation in the laboratory. (wikipedia.org)
  • molecules
  • Ligation is complicated by the fact that the desired ligation products for most ligation reactions should be between two different DNA molecules and the reaction involves both inter- and intra-molecular reactions, and that an additional annealing step is necessary for efficient ligation. (wikipedia.org)
  • plasmid
  • In molecular cloning, a vector is a DNA molecule used as a vehicle to artificially carry foreign genetic material into another cell, where it can be replicated and/or expressed (e.g.- plasmid, cosmid, Lambda phages). (wikipedia.org)
  • biological
  • Molecular biology /məˈlɛkjʊlər/ concerns the molecular basis of biological activity between biomolecules in the various systems of a cell, including the interactions between DNA, RNA, and proteins and their biosynthesis, as well as the regulation of these interactions. (wikipedia.org)
  • Protein
  • 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. (news-medical.net)
  • 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. (wikipedia.org)
  • Identification of Common Molecular Subsequences," in 1981, in which the Smith-Waterman algorithm for determining the degree of homology of DNA, RNA, or protein sequences was first described. (wikipedia.org)
  • field
  • Its focus on erythropoiesis represents an attempt to cover a rapidly expanding field, which has gone from elegant studies of erythro- poietin physiology, to molecular biology, to clinical applications and again to physiology. (springer.com)
  • Basic
  • not so much a technique as an approach, an approach from the viewpoint of the so-called basic sciences with the leading idea of searching below the large-scale manifestations of classical biology for the corresponding molecular plan. (wikipedia.org)
  • include
  • Some of the most highly cited articles that have appeared in the Journal of Molecular Biology since its inception in April 1959 include: "On the nature of allosteric transitions: a plausible model," in 1965, in which Jacques Monod, Jeffries Wyman, and Jean-Pierre Changeux presented the MWC model, that explained the cooperativity exhibited by allosteric proteins, such as hemoglobin.
