Biochemistry combines biology and chemistry to study living matter. It powers scientific and medical discovery in fields such as pharmaceuticals, forensics and nutrition. With biochemistry, we will study chemical reactions at a molecular level to better understand the world and develop new ways to harness these.
The study of Biochemistry has become more important and more sophisticated with applications in genetic engineering and molecular bioengineering as well as in the physiological and medical sectors. The topics derived from biochemistry are molecular biology, biotechnology and genetic engineering with a vast range of other biology-related disciplines. Biochemistry is the core subject in bioinformatics that links the biological sciences to computer technology. The study of Biochemistry allows students to gain knowledge in analyzing, practicing, and evaluating the knowledge and laboratory skills of a range of biochemistry topics.
