Role

There are many directions one could take as a biochemist. Basic research is possible, but most prefer to search for a job with a company.


The most common "industry" role is to develop biochemical products and processes. This can be done by conducting in vitro research, analysis, synthesis and experimentation. Identifying substances' chemical and physical properties in biological systems is of great importance, and can be carried out by doing various types of analyses. Biochemists must also prepare technical reports after collecting, analyzing and summarizing the information and trends found.


One of the other things that they do is that they mix chemicals together to find reactions to other elements with other elements


Training

All jobs in biochemistry field require an academic degree. A bachelor's degree in biochemistry or a related science such as chemistry is the minimum requirement for any work in this field. This is sufficient for a position as a technical assistant in industry or in academic settings. A Ph.D. (or equivalent) is generally required to pursue or direct independent research. To advance further in commercial environments, one may need to acquire skills in management. A degree is any of a wide range of status levels conferred by institutions of higher education, such as universities, normally as the result of successfully completing a program of study. ...

Biochemist (367 words)
Research biochemists find work in the labs of biotechnology companies; agricultural, medical, and veterinary institutes; and, in the case of half of all biochemists, universities.
Many biochemists are also interested in molecular biology, the study of life at the molecular level and the study of genes and gene expression.
Therefore, would-be biochemists have to complete an additional two to four years of study to earn their M.D. on top of their B.S. After finishing school, most biochemists embark on their career in the laboratory in the capacity of research technician.
Biochemist Career Description | Jobs | Career Choices (319 words)
The main task of the biochemist is to describe these components and to explain how these components interact with each other in the different biological processes.
Biochemists also work in industry where products are manufactured through chemical processes and reactions and this is called biotechnology.
Biochemists are involved in the control of the purity of foods, the development of specific antibiotics and they test the reaction of the human body to certain medicine.
