About Biochemistry

Do you get completely absorbed in finding out how living organisms harvest energy from their environment? Could you spend hours studying different organic compounds or DNA binding of bacterial proteins?

Biochemistry is derived from the disciplines of chemistry, physics and biology for understanding the processes that operate in cells and organisms and attempts to understand the uniqueness of complex living systems. The knowledge garnered from biochemical research has been applied to solve problems in areas ranging from agriculture to medicine.
