Biochemistry is the branch of science concerned with studying the chemical processes and substances that occur within living organisms.

Biochemistry and medicine enjoy a mutually cooperative relationship. The many functions that human organs perform are oftentimes based on chemical processes. One cannot hope to master the comprehension of Physiology without a solid grasp of Biochemistry, the basis of all metabolic processes.

The substances and reactions that are the subjects of the study of Biochemistry are also important players in the understanding of cellular biology, microbiology or the effects organisms can have on the human body, and the pharmacologic effects of medications.

Knowing the fundamentals
By Leslie Gabriela S. on 22. January 2022 for Involved Proteins – Protein Movement and Cell Signaling

The lecture breaks it down so simple that it’s easier to understand. There’s still more factors that I’m sure they’ll be discussed in other lectures but it’s perfect to help to create a strong foundation in your knowledge
