Structural Biology

Structural biology is the study of the molecular structure and dynamics of biological macromolecules, particularly proteins and nucleic acids, and how alterations in their structures affect their function. Structural biology incorporates the principles of molecular biology, biochemistry and biophysics. Molecules are groups of two or more atoms held together by chemical bonds. Molecules include DNA, RNA, proteins, carbohydrates (sugars), and lipids (fats). Structural biologists are particularly interested in proteins because they do so much of the work in the body. Increasingly, biologists are investigating large molecules made up of combinations of RNA and proteins, called RNA-protein complexes. Proteins are molecules that contribute to virtually every activity in the body. They form hair and fingernails, carry oxygen in the blood, allow muscles to move, and much more.
