Biochemistry and molecular biology

Biochemistry, sometimes called biological chemistry, is the study of chemical processes within and relating to living organisms. Molecular biology concerns the molecular basis of biological activity between the various systems of a cell, including the interactions between DNA, RNA and proteins and their biosynthesis, as well as the regulation of these interactions.
