Biochemistry & Molecular Biology

Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (BMB) is an interdisciplinary major, which studies life at the molecular level. Under the guidance of faculty members drawn from the departments of Biology, Chemistry, and Mathematics, BMB majors study the structures and functions of cells and biological molecules by using contemporary methods of biochemical analysis, recombinant DNA technology, and molecular genetics.
