The Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics proudly offers two distinct yet equally enriching minors for students keen on delving into the intricacies of molecular biology. The Biochemistry minor provides a rigorous exploration of cellular processes at the molecular level, covering essential topics such as enzyme kinetics, metabolic pathways, and molecular interactions. On the other hand, the Genetics minor delves deep into the fascinating realm of heredity, encompassing principles of inheritance, genetic variation, and the molecular mechanisms that govern gene expression. Both minors equip students with a specialized skill set poised to play a pivotal role in fields ranging from pharmaceutical research to personalized medicine and genetic counseling.
