Biochemistry is an interdisciplinary science that systematically integrates principles of mathematics, physics and chemistry to explain distinctive features of life processes in terms of structure- function correlations. Advances in biochemistry owe mainly to exploitation of principles and techniques used in physical sciences. Combination of biochemistry, cell biology and microbiology, in the recent past, to form molecular biology has led to great advances in understanding and control of biological processes in medicine, agriculture and pharmacology and food industries. During the recent past, biochemical methods have become specialized and sophisticated and proper understanding of the technique in its use in biochemical investigations is very important to arrive at any meaningful result. This book envisages various techniques used in chemistry to probe the structure of biological systems.
