Interdisciplinary Character of Biochemistry
Monica Butnariu*1, Irina Petrescu1 and Ioan Sarac1
Biochemistry is a frontier science with an interdisciplinary character. Biochemistry has close links with organic chemistry, which provides support for knowing the structure and properties of biomolecules. Analytical chemistry and physical chemistry provide biochemistry with methods of identifying, separating and characterizing biomolecules as well as kinetic and thermodynamic interpretation of biochemical reactions. Biochemical processes are carried out at cellular structures, so biochemistry interferes with molecular biology first and with morphology, which can also be approached from the aspect of structural element chemistry.
M.Sailaja, M.Sc., PhD
Biochemistry is study of chemical processes in the living organisms that give rise to complexity of life. This field is closely related to molecular biology, the study of the molecular mechanisms by which genetic information encoded
in DNA is able to result in the processes of life.

Biofilms: An Enigmatic Biochemistry of Microbial Life
T. S. Rao*
“Biofilms constitute a consortium of biotic elements like bacteria, cyanobacteria and algae attached to a substratum
by microbially produced extracellular polysaccharide matrix which entraps soluble and particulate matter, immobilizes extracellular enzymes and acts as a sink for nutrients and inorganic elements to further microbial life”.
