The Biochemistry degree prepares you for many avenues of science and is a strong start for admittance into graduate and professional schools. Our program is a cooperative program of the
Chemistry departments and offers students state-of-the-art equipment in a high-quality program with small class sizes.
Biochemistry students with a specimen of Omphalatus olearius, or “Jack-o-lantern” mushroom. The gills of this mushroom contain luciferase, a protein that converts chemical energy into light energy—they glow in the dark.
The glowing gills of the mushroom above are shown visualized using a molecular imager in the biochemistry lab.
