Transcript of Biochemistry is one of the crossover fields of chemistry. Bi
Biochemistry is one of the crossover fields of chemistry. Biochemists have to understand both the living world and the chemical world. Even if you don't want to become a biochemist, you'll still have to understand atoms and molecules as a biologist.
Biochemistry is the branch of science that explores the chemical processes within and related to living organisms. It is a laboratory based science that brings together biology and chemistry. By using chemical knowledge and techniques, biochemists can understand and solve biological problems.
Biochemistry focuses on processes happening at a molecular level. It focuses on what’s happening inside our cells, studying components like proteins, lipids and organelles. It also looks at how cells communicate with each other, for example during growth or fighting illness.
Biochemists need to understand how the structure of a molecule relates to its function, allowing them to predict how molecules will interact.
Biochemistry covers a range of scientific disciplines, including genetics, microbiology, forensics, plant science and medicine.
Because of its breadth, biochemistry is very important and advances in this field of science over the past 100 years have been staggering. It’s a very exciting time to be part of this fascinating area of study. Provide new ideas and experiments to understand how life works

After providing diagnoses, a doctor treats patients who are suffering from diseases and injuries.
Doctors can be primary care physicians or they may specialize in a particular area of medicine such as internal medicine, emergency medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, neurology, pediatrics, geriatrics, psychiatry, endocrinology, ophthalmology or anesthesiology.
There were nearly 700,000 doctors employed in 2012. While most work in private offices or clinics, an increasing number work in large group practices or hospitals
Many own or co-own private medical practices.
Doctors work at least full time hours. Most spend more than 40 hours a week on the job, including when they are on call for emergencies. They sometimes work overnight.
To become a doctor one must attend an accredited medical school for four years and then complete a three to eight year internship or residency program (collectively referred to as graduate medical education) depending on the specialty one chooses.
