Biomolecular Engineering

A biomolecular engineer studies and manufactures new molecules to create products and processes that don't already exist in the natural world. Biomolecular Engineering is an emerging discipline at the interface of molecular biology, biophysical chemistry, and chemical engineering. Biomolecular engineering is the application of engineering principles and practices to the purposeful manipulation of molecules of biological origin. Biomolecular engineering research includes mathematical modelling of biomolecules and biological processes, their quantitative measurements, visualizations, multidimensional and detailed structural analyses, protein structure prediction using current approaches protein structure- function relationships, rational design of bioactive molecules discovery of new target molecules leading to new drug discoveries, construction of artificial gene circuits to produce novel gene products. Worldwide, biomedical engineering is rapidly developing given its crucial role in the biomedical field.
