Biochemistry

Overview of Biochemistry

Biochemistry is the study of chemical processes within and relating to living organisms. Biochemistry is closely related to molecular biology, which is the study of molecular mechanisms by which genetic information is encoded in DNA. Much of biochemistry deals with the structures, functions, and interactions of biological macromolecules, such as proteins, nucleic acids, carbohydrates, and lipids. Biochemical processes include the synthesis of proteins and metabolism. Biochemistry can be applied to medicine, nutrition, and agriculture.

Dictionaries

Dictionaries are most often collections of words in one or more specific languages, usually arranged in alphabetical order, providing information like word meanings, usage, etymology, and, when they contain more than one language, translations. Some dictionaries include information more commonly found in encyclopedias.  Encyclopedias are collections of information on terms, figures, eras, locations also arranged alphabetically, and, alongside definitions of terms, they also include more in-depth general information on a topic. Encyclopedias can be general or subject-specific.
