Cell & Molecular Biology Research Guide: Home

About this research guide

Cell and molecular biology CMB is the study of cells and the macromolecules (DNA, RNA, protein, lipids, carbohydrates) that define their structure and function. Rather than focusing on the organisms of life (plants, animals, and microbes) and their differences, cell and molecular biology focus on the mechanisms of life and their commonality in all forms of life.

This guide will point you to the resources you will need to conduct research in writing your papers, labs, etc. Some of the sequence data that you will have to be familiar with are also available in related guides like bioinformatics, and biochemistry.
