Molecules are present in most astrophysical environments within galaxies and, beside having a key role in the formation and shaping of such galaxies, they are also powerful tracers of their physical characteristics and energetics. I will use examples from different regions of space, from interstellar and star forming gas in the Milky Way, to extragalactic star forming regions and active galactic nuclei, to demonstrate how important molecules are for our understanding of star and galaxy formation. In an era where data science has become such an integral part of astronomy, I will also show how statistical and AI techniques are now being routinely used to interpret and analyse astrochemical data.
