Biochemists study molecules found in living organisms, particularly proteins, nucleic acids, lipids, and carbohydrates. Biochemistry minors focus their studies on the biosynthesis, metabolism, function, and regulation of these molecules of life. This information is essential to gain an understanding of many biological processes, including how diseases like cancer and diabetes develop, and how genetic engineering and biotechnology can be used in ways that benefit society.
This program is available:
via classroom (the majority of instruction is face-to-face)
