The field Clinical biochemistry is the study of biochemical mechanisms in the body in relation to disease condition, through the testing of body fluids such as urine or blood or saliva. Many diseases tend to show significant changes in their chemical composition of body fluids like the increased levels of blood enzymes due to their release from heart muscles soon after a heart attack or also elevated blood sugar levels in diabetes mellitus that occurs due to less or nil of insulin. Biochemical tests are aimed to detect these modifications either qualitatively or quantitatively in comparison to results from nutritious people. Clinical biochemistry uses a wide range of analytical techniques with its applications mostly in clinical chemistry, molecular biology, therapeutic drug monitoring, toxicology, laboratory immunology & medicine used for diagnosis, prognosis, therapy and management of disease.

Structural Biochemistry is a sub-division of biochemistry that mainly focuses on the structural characteristics of the molecules within cells and other made up of living organisms. The main area is focused on structural basis of fundamental biological processes. It involves the study of the structure of macro molecules. It includes methods for structure determination and huge data of structural information. Few of the tools will be used to study some class of structures such as membrane, regulatory proteins, structural proteins. These structural macromolecules will provide the framework for discussion on domains, motifs, structural homology, etc., as well as addressing as to how specific biological problems can be solved at the atomic level.

A major branch of Biochemistry deals with the varied aspects of macromolecules at the structural and functional levels. It also deals with the interactions amongst different cell components including macromolecules like nucleic acids, proteins, lipids, amino acids and carbohydrates. Molecular Biochemistry has grown widely to capture the array of chemistry, physics, medicine and biology. It is one of the most important aspects of molecular biology to discover the chemical properties of the molecules. The processes that occur within the cell are responsible for their structure, reproduction and response to stimuli.

Cell signaling is part of a complex system of communication that governs basic cellular activities and coordinates cell actions. The ability of cells to perceive and correctly respond to their microenvironment is the basis of development, tissue repair, and immunity as well as normal tissue homeostasis. Errors in cellular information processing are responsible for diseases such as cancer, autoimmunity, and diabetes. By understanding cell signaling, diseases may be treated effectively and, theoretically, artificial tissues may be created. The principle of cell signaling is hinged on the fact that cellular communication frequently involves converting signals that carry information from one form to another. During cell communication, the signaling cell releases a particular signaling molecule that is then detected by the target cell. Most animal cells send and receive signals and as such act as both signaling and target cells. Animal cells can communicate through direct contact or by secreting local regulators such as growth factors or neurotransmitters.

It can also be defined as the study of energy relationships and energy transformations in living organisms. It spans applications of structural biology, molecular modeling, spectroscopy and biophysics in these systems, through bioenergetic aspects of mitochondrial biology including biomedicine aspects of energy metabolism in mitochondrial disorders, neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson's and Alzheimer's, aging, diabetes and even cancer. Bioenergetics is at higher echelons that enhance the intelligence and information dissemination on topics closely related to study of biomembranes, molecular mechanism of photosynthesis, mitochondrial and bacterial respiration, motility and transport, fossil fuels, biothermodynamics, fish bioenergetics, environmental microbiology, bio process engineering, cellular respiration, mitochondrial disease, electronic coupling fluctuations, electron-transfer proteins, molecular recognition and signal transduction.

Medical Biochemistry is that branch of medicine concerned with the biochemistry and metabolism of human health and disease. The medical biochemist is trained in the operation and management of clinical biochemistry laboratories, and acts as a consultant in all aspects of their use. The medical biochemist directs clinical laboratories, consults, diagnoses and treats patients with a variety of metabolic disorders and biochemical abnormalities. Medical biochemistry addresses the functioning of normal and diseased organisms from a biochemical point of view. Through modules in neurodegeneration, cardiovascular disease and immunology, one will develop a strong understanding of the implications of biochemistry within medicine alongside the research and experimental skills.

Biochemistry deals with various metabolic and biochemical processes within the living creatures. Amalgamation of these two technologies resulted in beginning of Nano biochemistry. This interdisciplinary combination of nanotechnology & biochemistry can create numerous innovative tools. Application of nanotechnology to biological sciences indicates creation of materials and devices designed to interact within the body with high degree specificity. This could be possibly used to target cellular and tissue-specific clinical applications that are directed at maximal therapeutic effects with no adverse-effects.

Biological systems depend on multimolecular complexes to accomplish the tasks. While these complexes can be large and may comprise several tens of components, the present imaging techniques are limited to imaging only two or three independent components of a molecular complex that can be 8-10 nm in diameter. Isolation of multimolecular complexes while retaining their supramolecular interactions has been critical to the study of mitochondrial respiratory supercomplexes.

Kinase-mediated signaling plays vital roles in cell growth, differentiation & homeostasis. Kinases signal by switching between on & off conformational states, and many inputs regulate the activity of all specific kinase. Abnormal kinase activity, frequently the result of mutation, is associated with numerous cancers, and kinase inhibitors have become a highly successful and growing course of anti-cancer agents. Biochemistry 2017 will focus on emerging insights into the molecular mechanisms by which kinase activity is regulated and how these insights are influencing strategies to target kinase activity in cancer.

The science of Medical Genetics is concerned with the physical and chemical characteristics of genes and their expression that controls the development & maintenance of the organism.The field of medical genetics is quite new & currently used to describe the cause of several inherited diseases. The disease typically results in generation of unreliable proteins such as in cases of hemophilia A then more than 200 'inborn errors' of metabolism are recognized in animals, disease conditions such as mannosidosis & galactosemia occur due to lack of a specific protein/enzyme that prohibits metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins, fats & thus shows clinical signs.
