Biochemistry is the explanation of life in molecular terms. It involves the study of proteins, lipids, carbohydrates and nucleic acids which are the fundamental molecules of life. Biochemists try to understand how these molecules interact in living organisms, in health and disease. Biochemistry is one of the fastest growing areas of modern science. By taking a combination of papers from both Biological Sciences and Chemistry students will gain a solid grounding in the molecular and chemical principles underlying Biochemistry.
Biochemistry is available as a minor.
To complete a minor in Biochemistry students must complete 60 points from the papers listed below, including BIOMO301, a further 45 points of which at least 15 points must be BIOMO coded, and another 15 points must be CHEMY coded.
Note: There will be no new enrolments into the Biochemistry major in 2018. Students who commenced a major in Biochemistry in 2017 or prior should contact the Faculty of Science and Engineering for advice.
