About This Course

Biochemistry is the study of chemical processes in living organisms, including, but not limited to, living matter. In this subject we will study about different molecules of our body and analysis of biomolecules with defferent techniques for example carbohaydrate test, protein test etc. Metabolism consists of a series of reactions that occur within cells of living organisms to sustain life. The process of metabolism involves many interconnected cellular pathways to ultimately provide cells with the energy required to carry out their function. The importance and the evolutionary advantage of these pathways can be seen as many remain unchanged by animals, plants, fungi, and bacteria. In eukaryotes, the metabolic pathways occur within the cytosol and mitochondria of cells with the utilisation of glucose or fatty acids providing the majority of cellular energy in animals.

Biochemistry governs all living organisms and living processes. By controlling information flow through biochemical signaling and the flow of chemical energy through metabolism, biochemical processes give rise to the incredible complexity of life.Biochemistry is closely related to molecular biology, the study of the molecular mechanisms by which genetic information encoded in DNA is able to result in the processes of life

Frequently Asked Questions

Importance of studying biochemistry and metabolism.

Biochemistry combines biology and chemistry to study living matter. It powers scientific and medical discovery in fields such as pharmaceuticals, forensics and nutrition. With biochemistry, you will study chemical reactions at a molecular level to better understand the world and develop new ways to harness these.

why we need to study importantce of biomolecules.

The biomolecules may involve in several processes such as energy storage (carbohydrates), catalyzing the biochemical reactions (hormones), storing/transmitting the genetic codes (RNA/DNA), or altering biological and neurological activities (neurotransmitter/hormones).These biomolecules are fundamental building blocks of living organisms, and therefore, the presence and appropriate concentrations of biomolecules are vital for the structure and proper function of living cells.
