Dear colleagues,

An excellent tool is available to get a feeling about molecular sizes in Biology.

The tool is available here and was developped by “Learn Genetics” program from the University of Utah.

You can have a short movie on it below, but please check the original one from here!!!


Why Molecular Biology?

At the very end you might ask why is the life in a molecular biology lab so interesting?

We discussed about water, pipettes and we will go on with several topics, but at the very end there is a wonderful, miraculous world. Each cell in our body and each cell in any living organism works based on the same principles. Information is stored, processed and replicated in cells.

Instead of giving a flat answer, let us look to the best animation I have ever seen about THE INNER LIFE OF THE CELL!
