Biochemistry is the science concerned with the chemical basis of life. Biochemistry incorporates everything in size between a molecule and a cell and all the interactions between them. The aim of biochemists is to describe in molecular terms the structures, mechanisms and chemical processes shared by all organisms, providing organizing principles that underlie life in all its diverse forms.

So a biochemist would study about these molecules namely carbohydrates, lipids, proteins and nucleic acids. Biochemist also studies their reactions and what affects them and in what ways. Biochemistry from Government College University Faisalabad, is thus a study of the compounds found inside living beings, the processes involved with the focus on the role, function and structure of these molecules.

 Biochemistry now encompasses all of the molecular and cellular life sciences. Scientific topics falling under the broad description of biochemistry include genetics, immunology, virology, developmental biology, neurobiology, cell biology and structural biology. A recent milestone in biochemistry was the completion of the Human Genome Project and stem cell therapy. 

There has never been a better time to study biochemistry. With the introduction of newer methods in science and technology, the scope in biochemistry is much greater than before. In fact, biochemistry is one course that is selected by most of today’s students.
