Department of Biochemistry

BMB Classroom 2019 D

NST Part 1B Biochemistry & Molecular Biology (BMB)

This course builds on NST Part IA Biology of Cells. It adopts a moderately sophisticated and strongly molecular approach to the concepts, knowledge base and methodologies needed to elucidate core themes and topics of modern biochemistry and molecular biology. The varied practical programme includes laboratory experiments and their discussion, introduction to hands-on computational molecular biology, and journal clubs.


NST Part IB Cell & Developmental Biology (CDB) 

This inter-departmental CDB course complements BMB by providing a view on cellular processes that is less molecular than BMB, and it progresses towards consideration of developmental processes of plants and animals. The Biochemistry Department contributes to the yeast genetics, membrane traffic, and bioinformatic components of the course.
