Biochemistry has applications in various fields, such as medicine, food chemistry, and environmental science. This major is the marrying of chemistry and biology. According to the American Chemical Society, “Biochemistry emerged as a separate discipline when scientists combined biology with organic, inorganic, and physical chemistry and began to study how living things obtain energy from food, the chemical basis of heredity, what fundamental changes occur in disease, and related issues.”
