The Chemistry Of Life Josie mccluskey

"Without the complex systems of chemistry in our lives, we wouldn't be here at all. Chemistry is what keeps us alive. Chemistry brings life... to life"- Anonymous

"IT is one of the mores striking generalizations of biochemistry- which surprisingly is hardly ever mentioned in the biochemical text books- that the twenty amino acids and the four bases, are, with minor reservations, the same throughout nature." - Francis Crick

  • Amino acids- Organic compounds that are the biological building blocks for all life processes
  • Atoms- Smallest unit of an element that still retains the property of the element
  • Isotopes- Forms of an element with differing numbers of neutrons
  • Compounds- A substance of two or more elements combined in a fixed ratio
