as well as chemistry
In biochemistry, you’ll look at the chemical basis for
life and study organisms at the molecular level.
You’ll explore the chemical processes that allow an
organismto grow, repair damage, and reproduce.
Subjects you may cover include enzymes, which
speed up the chemical processes in an organism, as
well as Deoxyribonucleic Acid.
