Molecular biology research at the molecular level is the phenomenon of life science. By studying biological macromolecules (nucleic acids, proteins) of the structure, function and biosynthesis of various aspects to clarify the nature of the phenomenon of life. The study includes a variety of life processes. Such as photosynthesis, the molecular mechanisms of development, the mechanism of neural activity, the incidence of cancer and so on.
