Biochemistry/Molecular Biology Concentration

This concentration is for students majoring in biology or life sciences chemistry who seek rigorous training in the molecular basis of biological processes. The concentration may be of interest to a) students planning for graduate work in fields such as biochemistry, molecular biology, biophysics, structural biology, and molecular genetics, b) students considering careers in biotechnology, and c) premedical students interested in the molecular basis of medicine. Admission to the concentration is limited because of space limitations in BL/CH 470, so students must apply to the coordinators for admission to the concentration by the end of sophomore year. Students must have completed the following courses before the start of junior year: for Biology majors, BL 155-158, 213; CH 141-144 (or 151H, 153), 221-224; MT 135, 228; for Chemistry majors, BL 155-158, 213; CH 141-144 (or 151H, 153), 221-224, 261, 263; MT 135-136 (or MT 135, 228), PH 125, 125L, 126, 126L, may be taken during the sophomore (preferably) or junior years. During the junior and senior years, students will take the following courses: for Biology majors, BL 465, 470; CH 361 (or 365, 366), 435-437, 439; for Chemistry majors, BL 465 and one BL elective chosen from a list provided by the coordinators; CH 361 (or 365-366), 367, 435-437, 439, 470. All of the courses listed here may be used to satisfy major requirements. Students will have to take additional courses to satisfy all requirements of their major.
