Drawing a clear boundary between chemistry and
biology is nearly impossible today given explosive growth of technologies for
synthesizing large organic molecules such as proteins, nucleic acids, and
complex carbohydrates. In the future, scientists investigating the foundation
and processes of life will increasingly have to master chemical methods, including
organic synthesis, NMR, and chromatography, and biological techniques such as
growing bacteria, gene cloning, monoclonal antibody technology, and enzymology,
to create molecules needed to test their biochemical hypotheses.
A specialization in Biological Chemistry offers a biologically oriented alternative to studies in the Department of Chemistry and Applied Biosciences (D-CHAB). Its chief aims are to understand the chemical reactivity of biological molecules in living organisms and to learn to recognize and solve current problems in bio-molecular design, engineering, and analysis.
Students will acquire experimental skills toward synthesis, purification, and characterization of molecules ranging in nature and size from the very small (medicines and enzyme inhibitors) to extremely large (genes and proteins).
