The importance of intellectual property law is well established at all levels-statutory, administrative and judicial. It lays down minimum standards for protection and enforcement in member countries which are required to promote effective and adequate protection of intellectual property rights with a view to reducing distortions and impediments to international trade.
 
The Agreement provides norms and standards in respect of following areas of intellectual properties are Patents, Trademarks, copyrights, Geographical indications, Industrial designs.
 
The global intellectual property market will move a step close to maturity when IP laws are followed, information transparency is achieved, and strategic thinking is given importance. Leading economies have already passed laws to encourage this. In the United States, for instance, introduced the America Invents Act in September 2011. The act is aimed at enhancing product quality by collecting third party patent-related information and registering it with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

By controlling information flow through biochemical signalling and the flow of chemical energy through metabolism, biochemical processes give rise to the complexity of life. Over the last 40 years, biochemistry has become so successful at explaining living processes that now almost all areas of the life sciences from botany to medicine are engaged in biochemical research.
 
Today, the main focus of pure biochemistry is in understanding how biochemical molecules give rise to the processes that occur within living cells, which in turn relates greatly to the study and understanding of whole organisms. Biochemistry has advanced, especially since the mid-20th century, with the development of new techniques such as chromatography, X-ray diffraction, dual polarisation interferometry, NMR spectroscopy, radio isotopic labelling, electron microscopy, and molecular dynamics simulations. These techniques allowed for the discovery and detailed analysis of many molecules and metabolic pathways of the cell, such as glycolysis and the Krebs cycle.
