Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

    Overview

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

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

    You will learn how to uncover the molecular processes of life and how this knowledge can be applied in medical science and biotechnology.

    Careers await in fields like pharmaceutical research, the biotechnology industry, or in the development and production of biochemical consumables. It can also springboard you to careers in agricultural and medical support industries and education.

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