Biochemistry & Biophysics


  • Physical Biochemistry (BIO 321) or Biophysics (BIO 363)
  • Bioinformatics (BIO 323)
  • Protein Structure and Function (BIO 361)

Through these courses, students will gain a detailed understanding of the chemical and physical nature of biological compounds and macromolecules, and how these compounds are formed, interconverted, changed and degraded in the chemical processes that govern life. (This concentration is not available to students also pursuing a Biochemistry concentration within the Chemistry major.)
