Molecular biology of sports is a rapidly evolving field that investigates the relationship between genetic and molecular factors and athletic performance. Research in this area aims to identify genes and molecules influencing physical traits such as strength, endurance, and speed. By understanding the underlying biology of athletic performance, scientists can develop new approaches to improve athletic training, injury prevention, and rehabilitation. The study of molecular biology in sports also provides insights into the relationship between genetics and lifestyle factors, such as diet and exercise, that affect overall health and well-being. This abstract will provide an overview of the current state of research in molecular biology of sports, including recent advances in genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics, and how these techniques are applied to sports science.

Keywords: Athletic performance, Endurance, Health, Metabolomics, Proteomics, Physical traits, Strength, Transcriptomics, Well-being.
