Biochemistry is the study of the structure, composition, and chemical reactions of substances in living systems. Biochemistry became a separate field when scientists combined biology with organic, inorganic, or physical chemistry and began to study such topics as how living things obtain energy from food, the chemical basis of genetics. Biochemistry includes the sciences of molecular biology; immunochemistry; neurochemistry; and bioinorganic, bioorganic, and biophysical chemistry.
The major goal of this book is to provide life science students, the basics of biochemistry in very simple and interesting manner.
To make it more explanatory the whole content is divided in 27 chapters spread in three major sections: The Molecular Concept of Life; Biosynthesis and Breakdown of Biomolecules and Transfer of Genetic Informations.

  • At the end of each chapter, there is a glossary to find out word meanings.
  • At the end of each chapter, there is a summary to understand the subject in short, followed by questions and references.
  • Matter is covered in an easy way and is explained with the help of diagrams.
