You will develop skills and knowledge of techniques through investigations in biology, chemistry and physics in the first year. This will be extended to cover the knowledge and techniques needed for the study of biochemistry by investigating biological molecules, enzymes, metabolic pathways and the structure of proteins. The course will cover the analytical techniques used in industrial and commercial laboratories, particularly titration, spectroscopy and chromatography.
