  Molecular biology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Molecular biology is the study of biology at a molecular level.
Molecular biology is the study of molecular underpinnings of the process of replication, transcription and translation of the genetic material.
Molecular biology was established in the 1930s, the term was first coined by Warren Weaver in 1938 however.

 Molecule - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Molecular chemistry deals with the laws governing the interaction between molecules that results in the formation and breakage of chemical bonds, while molecular physics deals with the laws governing their structure and properties.
A peculiar use of the term molecular is as a synonym to covalent, which arises from the fact that, unlike molecular covalent compounds, ionic compounds do not yield well-defined smallest particles that would be consistent with the definition above.
Molecular spectroscopy deals with the response (spectrum) of molecules interacting with probing signals of known energy (or frequency, according to Planck's formula).

 CDC - Molecular Approaches to Diagnosing and Managing Infectious Diseases: Practicality and Costs
Molecular typing methods have allowed investigators to study the relationship between colonizing and infecting isolates in individual patients, distinguish contaminating from infecting strains, document nosocomial transmission in hospitalized patients, evaluate reinfection versus relapse in patients being treated for an infection, and follow the spread of antimicrobial-drug resistant strains within and between hospitals over time (12).
Molecular strain typing of microorganisms is now well recognized as an essential component of a comprehensive infection control program that also involves the infection control department, the infectious disease division, and pharmacy (10, 21).
Molecular techniques for establishing presence or absence of clonality are effective in tracking the spread of nosocomial infections and streamlining the activities of the infection control program (21,23).

Molecular imaging is an emerging research area aimed at extending existing or novel methods to image specific molecular pathways in vivo, particularly those that are key targets in disease processes.
Molecular imaging approaches are not used to their full potential in humans, either in research or clinical environments.
Scope of Research Contrast in molecular imaging is generated or enhanced by molecular probes—reagents that are targeted to specific intracellular or extracellular molecules and either produce or alter signals that are detected by imaging devices.

The "mechanical" molecular model was developed out of a need to describe molecular structures and properties in as practical a manner as possible.
The object of molecular mechanics is to predict the energy associated with a given conformation of a molecule.
The torsion energy in molecular mechanics is primarily used to correct the remaining energy terms rather than to represent a physical process.

 Molecular Weight
Of the key parameters influencing the physical properties of polymers, the molecular weight distribution usually is the dominant factor, often influencing the other parameters.
The molecular weight of a particular polymer molecule is a product of the degree of polymerization and the molecular weight of the repeating unit.

To deny the feasibility of advanced molecular machinery, one must apparently maintain either (i) that design of proteins will remain infeasible indefinitely, or (ii) that complex machines cannot be made of proteins, or (iii) that protein machines cannot build second-generation machines.
Although the existence of molecular machinery in cells indicates the feasibility of some sort of artificial molecular machinery, errors in assembly might limit the synthesis of structures of great complexity.
Molecular devices can interact directly with the ultimate molecular components of the cell and thus serve as probes of unique value in studying processes within the cell.
