About the Area of Study
Biochemistry is a branch of medicine that deals with the application of physical and organic chemistry along with Biochemistry in human health and disease. It is a field of applied biology and chemistry and is appropriate for students interested in the delivery of health-care services. For medical students it is imperative that they learn about the normal functioning of the body which deals with the process of converting raw materials or nutritional chemicals into more useful and valuable bio molecules such as proteins, carbohydrates, lipids and nucleic acids. It also deals with molecular biology, the science of genes. It is the most important diagnostic sciences which deals with Biochemical investigations in blood and body fluids and helps doctors in diagnosis and decision making. The breadth and versatility of Biochemistry provides job opportunities in many kinds of laboratories like diagnostic, industrial, hospitals, speciality laboratories and pure medical research institutes.
