Introduction to Chemistry by Tracy Poulsen

What is Biology?

The word ‘bios’ means life and ‘logos’ means study. Hence, biology can be defined as the study of living organisms. It is divided into many specialized fields that cover their anatomy,  behavior,  morphology, physiology,origin, and distribution.

What is Chemistry?

Chemistry can be defined as the study of matter, its properties, and how substances interact with energy, how and why substances combine or separate to form other substances. Many people think of that “chemists” as being white-coated scientists mixing “strange liquids” in a laboratory, but the truth is we are all chemists. Understanding basic chemistry concepts is important for almost every profession. Chemistry is part of everything in our lives.

What is Biochemistry?

One of the most pressing issues in our society, environmental degradation, is being addressed by biochemists. A few examples of work currently being performed include improvements in the efficiency of photosynthesis to increase crop yields, bioremediation of polluted soils, development of new feed-stocks, chemistries for the production of biofuels, genetic mapping of ecosystems to monitor biodiversity, and methodologies for boosting biological capture of carbon. These and other biochemical technologies may play a crucial role in our efforts to find a sustainable means of living.

Perhaps the most obvious application of biochemistry in our everyday existence is in the field of health research. Biochemistry has been a key to our growing understanding of a myriad of health issues; from diabetes to arteriosclerosis to cancer.
