It is their job to study the structures and functions of enzymes, proteins, carbohydrates, fats, process of metabolism and the molecular basis of the action of genes also form a part of biochemistry. Today the field is gaining momentum and importance because of its ability to make significant contributions towards illumination and grasping of the DNA Structure. Mostly biochemists are involved in research related works. Biochemists can choose from a variety of specializations and almost all the specializations require good research techniques and the ability to combine and analyze information.
