Biochemists are interested in examining the molecular structure of living things. They study the chemical processes that are taking place internally to sustain life in humans and animals and contribute to an understanding of genetics and DNA. The work of biochemists has contributed towards many important developments in medical science such as prenatal screening and treatment of serious illness. It has also had implications for scientific developments in the environment with work on genetic modification of crops and developments of pesticides.
