Are you curious about Biochemistry? 

Biochemistry is the discovery of chemical processes and transformations in living organisms, including the structure and function of cellular components such as proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, nucleic acids, and other biomolecules. Biotechnology involves the development of novel products and new methods of production based on living organisms or their parts. Both biochemistry and biotechnology can be used to address issues in medicine, agrifood, industry, and the environment.
