Biochemistry is a Science Dealing with the Chemistry of Living Matter We know quite well what is chemistry But what is living matter? Life is characterized by High degree of complexity Extraction, transformation, and systematic use of energy to create and maintain structures and to do work Ability to sense and respond to changes in surrounding A capacity for fairly precise self-replication while allowing enough change for evolution
