A common interest in the workings of the cell links biochemists and molecular biologists together.
The wide variety of chemical reactions that occur in the cell are the interest of the biochemist, while the genetic storage, transfer and use of information is the domain of the molecular biologist and structure-function relationships interest both.
Biochemistry and molecular biology meld together into a rich understanding of the action and regulation of processes that sustain life.
