Human Biochemistry

Predict the structural features necessary to function for major macromolecules of biomedical relevance, including proteins, carbohydrates, lipids and nucleic acids, and apply these principles in predicting structure-function relationships for previously unviewed macromolecules.

Medical biochemistry

Medical biochemistry is best to be defined as an interdisciplinary research area incorporating different branches of chemistry and biology in the research for better and new drugs (Drug Discovery)

Organic biochemistry

Organic Chemistry involves the study of the fundamental reactions used to make known and new molecules. Our chemists study the chemistry of DNA, proteins, and carbohydrates, the molecules of life, but also materials that have never before existed and promise to revolutionize the world.

Anaerobic glycolysis

Anaerobic glycolysis is the transformation of glucose to pyruvate when limited amounts of oxygen (O2) are available. Anaerobic glycolysis is only an effective means of energy production during short, intense exercise, providing energy for a period ranging from 10 seconds to 2 minutes.

Biochemical pharmacology



uses the methods of biochemistry, biophysics, molecular biology, structural biology, cell biology, and cell physiology to define the mechanisms of drug action and how drugs influence the organism by studies on intact animals, organs, cells, subcellular compartments and individual protein molecules. The biochemical pharmacologist also uses drugs as probes to discover new information about biosynthetic and cell signalling pathways and their kinetics, and investigates how drugs can correct the biochemical abnormalities that are responsible for human illness, thus enabling the elucidation of


mechanisms that pave the way for further drug discovery.

Analytical chemistry

Analytical chemistry is the study of the separation, identification, and quantification of the chemical components of natural and artificial materials. Qualitative analysis gives an indication of the identity of the chemical species in the sample, and quantitative analysis determines the amount of certain components in the substance. The separation of components is often performed prior to analysis

Biochemical Molecules

Biochemistry is the study of the structure and properties of molecules in living organisms and how those molecules are made, changed, and broken down. It provides an understanding of what living organisms are composed of; how cells function and communicate; how they utilize building materials and energy for growth; how they perform catalysis, store and transmit genetic information; and how metabolism is co-ordinated and regulated. Examples of the types of molecules important to biochemistry are proteins, hormones, and nucleosides.


Pharmacology is the science that deals with the origin, nature, chemistry, effects, and uses of drugs; it includes pharmacognosy, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, pharmacotherapeutics, and toxicology.

Cancer Pharmacology

Cancer is any disease in which normal cells are damaged and do not undergo programmed cell death as fast as they divide via mitosis. Carcinogens may increase the risk of cancer by altering cellular metabolism or damaging DNA directly in cells, which interferes with biological processes, and induces the uncontrolled, malignant division, ultimately leading to the formation of tumors. Usually, severe DNA damage leads to apoptosis, but if the programmed cell death pathway is damaged, then the cell cannot prevent itself from becoming a cancer cell.

Molecular and cellular pharmacology

Molecular pharmacology deals with understanding the molecular basis for the actions of drugs and the characteristics of interactions between drug molecules and those of the substrates of drug action in the cell. The methods of molecular pharmacology include precise mathematical, physical, chemical, molecular biological and all biochemical and cell biological techniques to understand how cells respond to hormones or pharmacologic agents, and how chemical structure correlates with biological activity.

Protein engineering

Protein engineering is the process of developing useful or valuable proteins. There are two general strategies for protein engineering: rational protein design and directed evolution. It helps in understanding of protein folding and recognition of protein design principles.

Molecular ecology

Molecular ecology is a field of evolutionary biology, is concerned with applying molecular population genetics, molecular phylogenetics, and genomics. The development of molecular ecology is also closely related to the use of DNA microarrays, which allows for the simultaneous analysis of the expression of thousands of different genes.

Protein biochemistry

Proteins are linear polymers built of monomer units called amino acids. The construction of a vast array of macromolecules from a limited number of monomer building blocks is a recurring theme in biochemistry.

Genome-enabled biochemistry

It utilizes a combination of the latest tools in genomics, molecular genetics, biochemistry and bioinformatics to study fundamental biological questions.


Proteolysis is the breakdown of proteins into smaller polypeptides or amino acids. This occurs by the hydrolysis of peptide bond and is most commonly achieved by cellular enzymes called proteases and by intermolecular digestion, as well as by non-enzymatic methods such as the action of mineral acids and heat.

Animal biochemistry

In veterinary and research, biochemistry is highly relevant to the metabolism and function of animals in health and disease, and forms the basis for an intelligent understanding of major aspects of veterinary science and animal husbandry.

Structural biology

Structural biology is a branch of molecular biology, biochemistry, and biophysics concerned with the molecular structure of biological macromolecules, especially proteins and nucleic acids, how they acquire the structures they have, and how variations in their structures affect their function.

Molecular medicine

Molecular Medicine attempts to promote the understanding of normal body functioning and disease pathogenesis at the molecular level, and to allow researchers and physician-scientists to use that knowledge in the design of specific tools for disease diagnosis, treatment, prognosis, and prevention.

Applied glycoscience

Applied glycoscience deals with the study of complex carbohydrates and especially their relationships with protein and lipids.

Plant biochemistry

Plant biochemistry is the field of basic science explaining the molecular function of a plant, but is also an applied science that is in the position to contribute to the solution of agricultural and pharmaceutical problems.

*Unofficial 2014 Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2012 and 2013 with the number of times they are cited in 2014 based on Google search and the Scholar Citation Index database. If ‘X’ is the total number of articles published in 2012 and 2013, and ‘Y’ is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2014 than, impact factor = Y/X
