Biochemistry Jobs, Introduction, Required Abilities, Nature of Job, Career & Scope in Pakistan and Abroad
Biochemistry is commonly known as biological chemistry. Its a branch of organic chemistry, which deals with the chemical reactions which take place in living organisms. Large number of chemical reactions take place in living organisms like anabolism and catabolism. Molecular Genetics, Chemistry, Pharmacology, Molecular Biology, Gene therapy and Chemical Biology are closely related subjects to Biochemistry. Biochemist have discovered the structure of DNA.
