What is Biochemistry?

Biochemistry is a branch of chemistry that explores the chemical processes within and related to living organisms. It combines principles of biology and chemistry to understand the complex interaction of biomolecules that make life possible.

Pioneers in Biochemistry

  • Emil Fischer: Known for his research in the field of carbohydrates and enzymes, Fischer was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1902 for his work on sugar and purine syntheses.
  • James Watson and Francis Crick: Co-discoverers of the structure of DNA in 1953, their groundbreaking work paved the way for the modern field of molecular biology.
  • Rosalind Franklin: Franklin's work was instrumental in understanding the molecular structure of DNA, RNA, viruses, coal, and graphite.
