About Biochemistry

Biochemistry is the study of chemical processes associated with living organisms. Biochemists use concepts of biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, microbiology and genetics to unravel the complex puzzles of life.

Nutrition is the science that studies both the means by which we obtain and use foods and food components in the body, and the effects of food intake on health.
