• genetic
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • laboratory
  • Examples of transcriptome projects within the Laboratory of Molecular Biology include comparing gene expression between species that differ in their ability to form Rhizobium symbiosis (Parasponia and Trema) or between different tissues or treatments in a single species (e.g. (wur.nl)
  • 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)
  • publishes
  • The journal also publishes special issues devoted to most rapidly developing branches of physical-chemical biology and to the most outstanding scientists on the occasion of their anniversary birthdays. (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)
  • chemistry
  • The new field of Artificial Chemistries draws from chemistry, biology, computer science, mathematics, and other disciplines to work toward that goal. (mit.edu)

  • This volume of Molecular Biology of Hematopoiesis is dedicated to many inter- national scientists and clinicians for their contribution to the field of Hematology/ Oncology presented at the 11th International Symposium on Molecular Biology of Hematopoiesis, which was held in Bormio, Italy, June 25-29, 1998. (springer.com)
  • 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)
  • citation needed] One of the most basic techniques of molecular biology to study protein function is molecular cloning. (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)
  • 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)
  • cellular
  • Nuclear function, cytoskeleton and cell membrane interactions, transport of cellular products between different organelles fits in the Cellular Biology category. (springer.com)
  • 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. (wikipedia.org)
  • particularly
  • Greetings Can any one recommend an introductory text to the practicalities of molecular biology, particularly reagent formulations, determining the concentration of DNA by absorbance at 260, standard data eg extinction co-efficients of dNTPs. (bio.net)
