I know this is a very stupid question to ask, but I was wondering if everyone could tell me the difference between microbiology and molecular biology .
After descovering micro-organism, was belived tath all the living matter were plants or animals, was unknowed the existence of a transitional form. This transitional form is the microbiological field of studie (Jawest).
In Nature, William Astbury described molecular biology as:
"... not so much a technique as an approach, an approach from the viewpoint of the so-called basic sciences with the leading idea of searching below the large-scale manifestations of classical biology for the corresponding molecular plan. It is concerned particularly with the forms of biological molecules and ..... is predominantly three-dimensional and structural - which does not mean, however, that it is merely a refinement of morphology - it must at the same time inquire into genesis and function." W.T. Astbury, Nature 190, 1124 (1961)

Biomedicine and peace have to be like two wings of a single condor.
Micro-micron size scale so bacteria and cells of that size
Molecular-molecular scale, we're talking pretty much nanometers and angstroms. DNA, RNA, Ion channels.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Microbiology, as mith pointed out is the study of the so-called microorganisms, virii, bacteria and other single celled eukaryotes.
Molecular biology is a set of techniques using the molecular properties of the living cells (at any scale) to understand, characterize them. So if you want it is more the application of chemistry to the biology. This is usually used in opposition to the more "classical" techniques that are cultures, microscopic observations, dissections and so on.
Science has proof without any certainty. Creationists have certainty without
any proof. (Ashley Montague)
