Biochemistry & Biophysics 2019-2020

Biochemistry is the study of biologically significant chemical processes. The field of biophysics applies theories of physics to the study of biological systems and processes, including molecular motors and membrane dynamics. Through this concentration, 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.


The following courses are required in order to receive a Degree in the Program in Biological Sciences with a concentration in Biochemistry and Biophysics:
