INTRODUCTION

Even though the term biochemistry, after about 100 years of use, has become commonplace in our language, a precise definition is difficult and depends on who you ask. Most scientists will agree with the straightforward definition, the study of life at the molecular level. The word ?biochemistry? has two components, biology and chemistry, and students of the discipline must be well versed in the fundamentals of both subjects. Biochemistry can also be defined as:
     ? The science that is concerned with the structures, interactions, and transformations of biological molecules
     ? The chemistry of life.
     ? The science concerned with the chemical basis of life.
    ? The science concerned with the various molecules that occur in living cells and organisms and with their chemical reaction.
