The Chemistry of Microbiomes
Publisher: National Academies Press 2017
Number of pages: 132
The human organism is no longer considered a monolithic assembly of tissues, but is instead a true ecosystem composed of human cells, bacteria, fungi, algae, and viruses. As such, humans are not unlike other complex ecosystems containing microbial assemblages observed in the marine and earth environments. They all share a basic functional principle: Chemical communication is the universal language that allows such groups to properly function together. These chemical networks regulate interactions like metabolic exchange, antibiosis and symbiosis, and communication.

This book gives a nearly complete statement of the whole subject. The essential points are illustrated by the practical experiments. The book is intended mainly for medical students, but it contains the essentials for all students of Biology.
This collection of Wikipedia articles is intended to supplement a standard textbook of biochemistry. Students may find its explanations complement their texts for greater clarity. In some areas its information will extend past their texts.
Structural biochemistry is a branch of the life sciences which combines biology, physics, and chemistry to study living organisms. Biochemistry involves studying the cells, and the functions of its components, since it focuses on biomolecules.
