DescriptionBiochemistry studies the chemistry of life, from microorganisms and Drosophila to humans. Biochemistry covers many different research areas: the three-dimensional structure of proteins, DNA and membranes, how enzymes function in metabolism, how the genetic code directs protein synthesis, how proteins are modified within cell compartments, how ions are transported across membranes, how hormones trigger cellular responses, how DNA mutations cause disease, how cells carry out phagocytosis or respond to infection and the design of programs that survey families of related proteins.
