Life at the molecular level
If you have ever wondered how living things work, where they get their energy, how they make the components they need or what your genes do, then Biochemistry is for you.
In this project we will take a hands-on look at how life works. We will be exploring how genes make proteins, how we can manipulate plants to produce what we want, and how our own bodies respond to food.
Biochemistry helps us understand life at the molecular level and can help make advances in areas such as medicine, disease treatment, plant and crop biotechnology, animal health, and climate change.
