- All living things are made up of certain chemical compounds that are broadly classified as organic and inorganic compounds.
- The organic compounds encompass the biological molecules present in the living system.
Biological molecules or biomolecules is a broad term used for representing the molecules or ions present in a living system that take part in the chemical processes carried out by the living systems.
The study of biological molecules is carried out by correlating Molecular biology with Biochemistry.
It is the branch of biology in which we study the structure and functions of biological molecules along with molecular synthesis, modifications, mechanisms, and interactions.
Biochemistry is a sub-discipline which deals with the study of chemical processes occurring within and related to living organisms.
TYPES OF BIOMOLECULES:
There are four main types of biological molecules
