Bachelor of Science (Honours) Biochemistry

Biochemistry has grown as techniques for its study become more sophisticated with applications in genetic engineering and molecular bioengineering as well as in the physiological and medical areas. 

This programme is developed in response to the continuous and increasing demand for bioscience-based courses, both locally and internationally. It provides students with the aptitude to investigate a diverse range of problems in animals, plants and micro-organisms, encompassing each level of the biological organisation. The study of scientific theory is supplemented with practical sessions (experiments and laboratory projects) in order to better understand the chemistry of living things. 

The topics of molecular biology, biotechnology and genetic engineering are derived from biochemistry and the subject interacts with a wide range of other biology-related disciplines. Biochemistry is also the core subject in bioinformatics which links the biological sciences to computer technology.
