The subject of Biochemistry although very young, yet has been gaining incremental importance in the field of medical sciences since its inception. Being part of Basic medical sciences it deals with chemical nature of life, fate of different chemicals ingested by living organisms and errors in the metabolism and genetic codons. It also solves the dogma of life and chemical communication systems operating in a living organism.
