Description:

Biochemists ask questions such as: How do fireflies create light and how can this bioluminescence be used as a research tool? What causes mad cow disease and how can this disease be cured? How can some bacteria thrive in boiling temperatures? Biochemists are curious about how and why biological processes happen, and they research answers down to the molecular level. During the course of your studies, much of your learning will occur while actively working on problems in class, during tutorials, and in the laboratory. This degree will provide you with an understanding of the theory and practical use of current techniques used in biochemical research, and will give you an understanding of newly evolving fields such as bioinformatics and functional proteomics.
