The molecular biology, biochemistry and bioinformatics major offers a strong foundation in three dynamic disciplines with an emphasis on real-world applications through hands-on research.
The program includes core courses encompassing all three areas of the major and additional courses in a concentration that will allow you to specialize in one of those three areas.
The molecular biology concentration examines the molecular basis of life. Molecular biology uses molecular approaches to understand the processes of living systems and has applications in all areas of biology.
The biochemistry concentration examines the molecules of life, with emphasis on the chemical structure and reactivity that shape biological function.
The bioinformatics concentration involves the application of computer science to the study of the molecular basis of life.
