Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Clark University

Major or Minor in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

Explore the molecular and chemical basis of life

At the intersection of biology and chemistry is the field of biochemistry and molecular biology (BCMB), an area of science that is perhaps the most exciting, actively growing and impactful of any today. As a biochemistry and molecular biology major or minor, you investigate the cellular components (proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, nucleic acids, etc.) of living organisms and the chemical interactions, like those involving DNA, RNA and protein synthesis, that enable life forms to thrive, adapt and evolve.
