Bio Inorganic Chemistry

        Bioinorganic chemistry is a field that examines the role of metals in biology. It is the gateway of inorganic chemistry and biochemistry i.e, it describes the mutual relationship between these two sub-disciplines, with the focus upon the function of inorganic substances in living systems, including the transport, speciation and eventually, mineralization of inorganic materials, and including the use of inorganics in medicinal therapy and diagnosis. These substances can be metal ions, composite ions, coordination compounds, or inorganic molecules.
Or,  Bio-inorganic chemistry is a multi-disciplinary field that draws on expertise in biochemistry, chemistry, crystallography, genetics, medicine, microbiology together with the effective application of advanced physical methods.
