Life Science - Biochemistry

Introduction

Biochemistry is the study of components and compositions of living cells. It focuses on studying the components building up a cell, such as carbohydrates, protein, fats, nucleic acid and other biomolecules, generally deals with the structure, function, chemical reaction and the relationship between living cells. Apart from the inner part of cells, students will also learn chemistry in the human body, plants and microorganisms, for instance, the metabolism, synthesis and decompose of the matter, transmission of the signals, mutation of genetic materials, the occur and cure of diseases.
