A Biologia Molecular é o estudo da Biologia em nível molecular, com especial foco no estudo da estrutura e função do material genético e seus produtos de expressão, as proteínas. Mais concretamente, a Biologia Molecular investiga as interacções entre os diversos sistemas celulares, incluindo a relação entre DNA, RNA e síntese proteica. É um campo de estudo alargado, que abrange outras áreas da Biologia e da Química, em especial Genética e Bioquímica.


Escrevendo na Nature (1961) William Astbury descreveu a biologia molecular como sendo ...

"...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."
