Biochemistry concerns itself with the study of life at the molecular level. An introduction to the biochemistry topics of proteins, protein kinetics, nucleic acids, and genetics is presented in this chapter. In addition, a discussion of genomics and proteomics introduces topics of current relevance. The last section of the chapter discusses zinc-finger proteins, a topic that combines information introduced in this chapter on proteins, protein analysis, DNA, DNA binding, and cloning.
