About


Hi! Welcome to molrec.com

Molrec.com is dedicated to science, particularly Forensics.
I am a university educator and researcher with more than twelve years of experience. I work in the area of forensic sciences and molecular recognition.
Research areas:
Forensic Sciences: Forensic DNA typing and other serological examinations, Population genetics, Document and handwriting examinations, Forensic chemistry & toxicology, Quality management in forensic sciences, ethical considerations in forensics, etc.
Other areas: Analytical Chemistry, Spectroscopy & Computational modeling of biomolecular interactions.

Molrec.com is a place to discuss theory, principles, methods, protocols and to provide information about various aspects of the sciences described above. I am particularly interested in Forensic Science methods and principles, its approach and the growth of the field.
This blog is a place for students, young researchers and science enthusiasts. This could be a good place to look for practical solutions to some of the problems commonly encountered by young students & researchers in their work. Recently, the site also started publishing job opportunities forensics and other fields for the benefit of students.

I hope molrec.com will be useful for you.

Happy life..

How to Sketch a Molecule from Scratch: Part-1

It is often necessary in various scientific disciplines to prepare sketches of molecules for project reports, research papers and teaching assignments, etc. Drawing a sketch also helps in developing the concepts in science, for example, the bonding patter in organic molecules, their valencies, etc. Educators and researchers regularly use sketches in their daily work. With the development of computing computer based sketching has become more  common and more and more people are using computers for everything for drug design, manufacturing and publications of results. Several tools are available for sketching. Here, we will see how small molecules can be drawn using an exciting and free software ‘ACDChem Sketch’ from ACD Labs. Lets begin by drawing a simple molecule ‘Indole’. The pictures below are self explaining.



You can build a larger molecule by adding side chains at the desired positions on the main Indole ring. The method is shown below.

Apart from building simpler molecule like indole…

Some Structural Aspects of Non-covalent DNA Binding Agents

Keywords: Drug-DNA binding, DNA intercalation, Minor Groove binding, Drug Design Introduction Cancer is a group of over 100 diseases known by the prolific increase of cellular mass of the tissues in an unusual manner to cause death of a person.1 In addition, cancerous cells do not adhere to each other and to the inter-cellular matrix. This property of non-adherence enables them to propagate to distant sites in the body and spread the cancer.2             Modern day drug discovery is fundamentally driven by biology. Biological molecules like DNA & proteins are valuable targets for drug action. DNA is central to several life processes like replication, transcription, etc. DNA produces copies of itself via replication mechanism. On the other hand, DNA transcription results in the synthesis of proteins. Since DNA is an indispensable part of the living system, it can be a valuable target for drug action.3 With the help of DNA binding drugs, one can target vital processes like replicatio…
