Description:The disciplines of Genetics and Biochemistry have been in a powerful alliance for over a century and have given rise to the modern research discipline of molecular biology. Scientists studying patterns of inheritance have worked together with those studying the structure and interaction of cellular components in order to elucidate the structure of DNA, the basic mechanisms of gene structure and expression, intricate developmental pathways, evolutionary histories, disease pathologies and now, the complete spectrum of genes, transcripts or proteins used by an organism. The Honors Specialization in Genetics and Biochemistry offers an opportunity to bring these two disciplines together and is jointly coordinated by the Departments of Biology and Biochemistry.
