The degree programme trains biochemists with a modern view of the living world and its environment. It provides theoretical and practical training that enables the student to identify, isolate, purify, quantify and elucidate the structures of important bio-molecules from tissues and organs. A graduate in Biochemistry should understand, interpret and explain biochemical data that account for the complexity, diversity and unity of life forms, and assess the dynamic processes of the transformation of matter and energy in living cells. Emphasis is laid on fundamental principles governing heredity, genetic information transfer, expression and regulation; chemical basis of the origin of life and evolution. Attention is paid to applications of biochemical concepts to improve human and animal health, increase agricultural production, and enhance environmental management, service industries and biotechnology. A quantitative approach involving the use of chemical and physical principles is employed to explain underlying biological processes.
