It is now well established that chemistry in our Milky Way as well as in
external galaxies is rich and complex. In this talk, I will show how molecules play a key role in the
formation and shaping of the dense gas in galaxies. By using examples from different
regions of space, from interstellar and star forming gas, to gas surrounding AGNs, I will demonstrate how
important molecules are for our understanding of star and galaxy formation. Finally I will present a new approach for the
interpretation of molecules using Bayesian and Machine Learning techniques.
