Biochemistry, the branch of science that explains the chemical basis of life, is truly a merge of chemical sciences and biological sciences. Biochemistry is the application of chemistry to the study of biological process at the cellular and molecular levels.

Microbiology involves the study of microscopic organisms which has immensely contributed to methods of disease diagnosis, prevention, and control of infection, ensuring quality assurance for food, pharmaceutical, and chemical industry, control of environmental pollution, and waste disposal systems. It is microbiology that led to the development of antibiotics and vaccines.
