Biochemistry is the science concerned with the various molecules that occur in living cells and organisms and with their chemical reactions. And it is also concerned with the chemical constituents of living cells and with the reactions and processes that they undergo. By this definition it encompasses large areas of cell biology, of molecular biology, and of molecular genetics.

Goals and objectives
The major objective of biochemistry is the complete understanding at the molecular level of all of the chemical processes associated with living cells.

The Educational goals
To provide extensive educational programme for under graduates in the field of biochemistry through a series of lectures and practical demonstrations. To assist the students in acquiring accurate diagnostic skills that would make them excel as teachers and leaders in the speciality.
