Overview

Biochemistry is a scientific discipline at the interface of chemistry and biology. Biochemistry attempts to describe, reconstruct and even furhter develop, on a chemical and physical level, molecular processes occuring in living nature. 

The results of research in biochemistry help understand molecular causes of diseases on an atomic and quantitative level. 

Pharmaceutical research and development build up on fundamental biochemical findings. 

But, results of biochemical research are furthermore found in biotechnology, in envirnmental protection, in nutrition industry, and very likly in informatics in the near future. 

And, gradually biochemistry will become a key area when chemical processes have to be rendered less harmful to the environment.
