Welcome to the site for biochemistry and molecular biology! Biochemistry and molecular biology are the study of the interactions that support life. The web lessons are designed to provide a basic introduction to definitions, structures, and terminology that can be useful in understanding more complex systems. I would encourage you to read these lessons and then use a standard textbook for additional information to expand your knowledge base.

As a general note, the study of medicine requires you to know a lot of things, some more or less interesting, but all will be vital in your practice of medicine. While a well rounded and vast collection of content details is important, you should appreciate that knowing how to use this content is much more valuable. The information contained within this site should make easier reading of your favorite professional journals.
