Biochemistry is a interdisciplinary branch of the science that use principles and methods of chemistry in the investigation of the transformations that occur in substances and molecules proceeding from living creatures and their metabolic processes. Also known as "biological chemistry".
Biochemistry is the study of the structure and function of cellular components, such as proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, nucleic acids, and other biomolecules. Recently biochemistry has focused more specifically on the chemistry of enzyme-mediated reactions, and on the properties of proteins.
