  • FOREWORD
    TheFederal University, Dutsin-Ma was established in 2010 by the Federal Government of Nigeria for the purpose of increasing access to University education in the country. The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology is in the Faculty of Science and Education and is one of 17 Academic Departments that commenced academic programmes in July, 2012. The Department started with eleven (11) students and staff that specialized in different areas of Biochemistry. Biochemistry is a branch of science dealing with the chemical compounds, reactions, and other processes that occur in living organisms. In other words, Biochemistry is the discipline that embraces the study of the structure and function of life – form at the molecular level. Life possesses the properties of replication, catalysis and mutability. Biochemists are, therefore, concerned with the manner in which living organisms exhibit these properties. Molecular biology is a closely related discipline that originates in the study of DNA and its metabolism, and now embraces all those investigations that exploit the technology that has resulted from this work. Both disciplines aim to explain the behaviour of life-forms in molecular terms, and are so closely interrelated that separation is barely possible. It is a versatile discipline that spans all disciplines associated with life and living organism. For instance, Physiology, the study of body function, overlaps with biochemistry almost completely. Immunology employs numerous biochemical techniques, and many immunologic approaches have found wide use by biochemists. Pharmacology and pharmacy rest on a sound knowledge of biochemistry and physiology; in particular, most drugs are metabolized by enzyme-catalyzed reactions. Poisons act on biochemical reactions or processes; this is the subject matter of toxicology. Biochemical approaches are being used increasingly to study basic aspects of pathology (the study of disease), such as inflammation, cell injury, and cancer. Many workers in microbiology, zoology, and botany employ biochemical approaches almost exclusively. These relationships are not surprising, because life as we know it depends on biochemical reactions and processes. In fact, the old barriers among the life sciences are breaking down, and biochemistry is increasingly becoming their common language.
