Biochemistry is the study of an intricate interwoven ‘designed’ use of many elements in cells. It can only be fully appreciated in terms of the patterns of flow of chemicals, of ionic and electronic charge, and of energy directed in space. This requires a knowledge of the selection of the elements not only in analytical terms of uptake and chemical combination but also in terms of their spatial separation and functional specification. Starting from the abundance and availability of the elements… Expand
