On this  Biochemistry (Hons) course from Nottingham Trent University you’ll develop an understanding of what is happening inside the cells of living organisms and how this has changed through the evolutionary process.


With a focus on understanding the data, you’ll look at DNA / RNA synthesis, proteins and genetics and learn how these can unlock the diagnosis of biochemical disorders and human diseases. 

Understanding, analysing and drawing meaning from data is becoming increasingly important in industry. We’ve recently redeveloped this course to include bioinformatics skills across all years of your course. If you are really interested in this growing area of biochemistry, then you can also immerse yourself further by focusing on bioinformatics for your final year research project.
