Department of Molecular biology -Overview

Molecular biology is the study of life at the molecular level and because of that it intersects with many other sciences such as biochemistry and genetics. 
Molecular biology concerns itself with studying the basis of biological processes at the molecular level by examining the relationship between cellular systems, especially between nucleic acids and protein synthesis and their control mechanisms.

Student of molecular biology study a variety of courses such as molecular genetics, molecular immunology, molecular endocrinology and the molecular basis of human genetic diseases.  Being one of the youngest and fastest developing sciences in biology, applications of this science are seen in medicine, biotechnology and genetic engineering.
