Overview

The BS in Biochemistry at the SUNY - College of Environmental Science a differs from the option in Biochemistry (with a BS in Chemistry) by requiring fewer junior-level Chemistry courses. This allows students to take Biochemistry courses earlier in their studies. The BS in Biochemistry also requires coursework in Biology that is not required of Chemistry majors.

Research areas include the elucidation of chemical signals by which organisms communicate with each other, the role of trace metals in the growth of microorganisms, the origin and function of biologically active natural compounds, and synthetic biology and metabolic engineering for the production of value-added products and antimicrobial compounds.
