A person who practices Biochemistry and has studied Biochemistry course is generally called as Biochemist. Biological processes are complex processes that have many aberrations as presented in many disorders and diseases. Mechanistic molecular details of these complexities are necessary to infer relevant information in order to derive molecules, methods, tools or approaches to overcome or manage these disorders.
A Biochemist therefore studies molecular, metabolic and physiological details of the concerned biological phenomena to connect molecular basis to systemic physiological effects. They spend a lot of time inside a biochemistry laboratory with designing and executing molecular or metabolic experiments more often dealing with clinical samples, various reagents and numerous spectroscopy, potentiometry, electrophoresis, chromatography and centrifugation instruments. It is their job to design, execute and infer useful information from these experiments.
Biochemists excel themselves in disciplines of biomolecular structure and function, metabolism, enzymology, clinical biochemistry, pharmaceutical biochemistry, endocrinology, plant biochemistry, molecular physiology etc.
