What Will You Learn?

A branch of science that explores the chemical processes that exist within, and are related to, living organisms, biochemistry is a laboratory-based science that combines both biology and chemistry. It covers a wide range of disciplines that include fields such as genetics, microbiology, forensics, plant science, and medicine and has provided crucial contributions to our knowledge of humanity. Through studying this course, you will learn the foundations of this fascinating field.

The course starts by defining the subject by answering the question “What is Biochemistry?”, before you go deeper into the subject – learning what molecular biology and cellular biology are. You’ll explore the 4 main classes of molecules in biochemistry (also known as...
