The science of Biochemistry seeks to understand how organisms function. MSc Biochemistry requires investigating enzyme reactions, mechanisms of gene regulation, chemical signaling pathways, and cellular structure at the molecular level. Biochemists study how animals, plants and bacteria make use of energy to grow, compete with other organisms and reproduce. Their findings affect mankind and help understand and treat disease, improve food production and find new techniques to produce valuable products such as vitamins and antibiotics.
