Biochemistry is the branch of natural science. Biochemistry deals with the structure, properties and metabolism of biomolecules as well as the formation and transmission of genetic information. The Department of Biochemistry aimed to meet a key goal of modern biological science – to implement a detailed understanding of the structure, functions and chemistry of the underlying molecular constituents of cells. The important feature is that biochemistry uses molecular or chemical methods to explain biological processes. The emphasis of research has shifted towards food biochemistry, environmental biochemistry, analytical biochemistry, molecular biochemistry, genomics and proteomics, biotechnology, cellular biophysics and structural biology, clinical biochemistry, biochemical neuropharmacology, bioinformatics, and nutritional biochemistry.
