Description

Biochemistry is the study of chemical reactions in living organisms. It is a science that combines biology and chemistry in a laboratory setting. Biochemists research the structure, content, and chemical reactions of molecules found in biological systems, as well as their roles and regulatory mechanisms.

Molecular Biochemistry is the study and modification of nucleic acids and proteins in laboratories for applications in human and animal health, agriculture, and the environment. Many fields of science, including molecular biology, microbiology, biochemistry, immunology, genetics, and cell biology, have come together to form molecular biotechnology. It’s an intriguing area that’s powered by the capacity to transfer genetic information across species in order to better understand crucial biological processes or create a valuable product. The technologies of molecular biotechnology may be used to enhance human and animal health by developing and improving medications, vaccines, treatments, and diagnostic tests. Plant and animal agriculture, aquaculture, chemical and textile manufacture, forestry, and food processing all use molecular biotechnology. In the discipline of biochemistry- molecular biology, biologists and chemists collaborate on a common concern for cell life and composition. The biochemist’s main interests are the huge and intricate variety of chemical processes that occur in living matter, as well as the chemical makeup of the cell. The molecular biologist investigates life processes at the molecular level, such as the storage and transfer of genetic information, as well as interactions between cells and the viruses that infect them.

Cell biology covers both prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells and includes a number of subtopics such as cell metabolism, cell communication, cell cycle, biochemistry and cell composition. Cells are studied utilising a variety of microscopy methods, cell culture, and cell fractionation. Cell biology (sometimes referred to as cellular biology or cytology) is the study of the structure, function, and behaviour of cells. Cells are the building blocks of all living things. A cell is the smallest unit of life and is responsible for organisms’ survival and function. The study of the structural and functional components of cells is known as cell biology. Cell biology covers both prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells and includes a number of subtopics such as cell metabolism, cell communication, cell cycle, biochemistry, and cell composition. Cells are studied utilising a variety of microscopy methods, cell culture, and cell fractionation. These have enabled and are presently allowing for discoveries and study into how cells behave, ultimately providing insight into broader issues.

Biochemistry and molecular biology are sub-disciplines of biological sciences, which is a bigger, more comprehensive field. Students studying biochemistry and molecular biology must be genuinely interested in and capable of performing well in the “quantitative” sciences, as well as having a strong background in biology, chemistry, mathematics, and physics from high school or community college. Macromolecular structure and function, Gene regulation and signal transduction, Enzymology and metabolism, Bioinformatics and computational biology, Synthetic biology, Biophysics and analytical methods are just a few of the cutting-edge research programmes in biochemistry and molecular biology that cover both traditional and modern disciplines. The structure, function, intracellular processes, and creation of cells are all studied in this interdisciplinary area. Understanding life and biological activities at the molecular level is a focus of research.
