What Biochemists Study

Biochemists study all the cellular processes necessary for life. Some biochemists focus on understanding the roles of specific biological molecules, such as proteins or lipids, in living cells. Others try to understand how organisms make energy from the nutrients they obtain. Still, others investigate how different cells communicate with each other or how cells defend [...]

Biochemistry: An Introduction to the Fuse Between Biology And Chemistry

Biochemistry represents the meeting of two different sciences, biology and chemistry. Biology is the study of living things, while chemistry is the study of the organization and interactions of matter. Biochemists investigate the chemistry of living systems. Biochemists examine four major biological molecules: carbohydrates, lipids (fats), proteins, and nucleic acids (such as DNA). Biochemists try [...]
