Researchers in the field of molecular biology study the formation, structure, and function of biological macromolecules such as nucleic acids and proteins. The work in this field focuses on the role of these macromolecules in cell replication and transmission of genetic information. It is quite common for molecular biologists to manipulate DNA for the purpose of sequencing or mutation, in which the DNA is then inserted into the genome of an organism to analyze the effects of the mutation.
