Major

Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

    Overview

    It took 13 years and $1 billion to sequence the first human genome. Today, you only need a few thousand dollars and you’ll get the results tomorrow.

    In this major, you’ll develop your understanding of biological processes and specialised areas of molecular science. And of course, you’ll spend lots of time in the lab developing the skills you need to work in the field. You will build the knowledge and techniques now needed in many rapidly advancing fields of medical research and biotechnology.

    Careers await in pharmaceutical research, the biotechnology industry, or in the development and production of biochemical consumables.

    You can study this major in the Bachelor of Biomedicine or the Bachelor of Science.
