Biochemistry is the study of substances and chemical processes occurring in living organisms. Biochemistry also deals with the areas of nutrition, clinical biochemistry and biochemical aspects of toxicology, pharmacology, physiology, endocrinology, signal transduction and virology. Biochemistry plays a central role among the biological sciences especially in its expanding relationship with genetics in the area of molecular biology. The most distinctive feature of biochemistry is the essential contribution it makes to all areas of biology and medicine as they become more "molecular" in their emphasis.
