Biochemistry, sometimes called biological chemistry, is the study of chemical processes within and relating to living organisms. By controlling information flow through biochemical signaling and the flow of chemical energy through metabolism, biochemical processes give rise to the complexity of life.
In their daily work, biochemists analyze enzymes, DNA, and other molecules to research the effects of drugs and food on biological processes. They use electron microscopes, lasers and other laboratory instruments as well as computer modeling software to determine the structures of molecules




  • Laboratory skills and the ability to plan and do research.
  • Strong problem-solving skills.
  • An analytical and investigative mind.
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills.
