Purpose of Biochemistry

Biochemistry is the application of chemistry to the study of biological processes at the cellular and molecular level. It emerged as a diverse discipline around the beginning of the 20th century when scientists combined chemistry, physiology and biology to investigate the chemistry of living systems. Biochemistry is offered as major course towards offering both undergraduate and postgraduate degrees. It provides explanations for the causes of many diseases in humans, animals and plants.
