Department of Biochemistry


Reading for Part IB BMB

  • Most of the books for BMB should be available in your College library, but to give as many students as possible an opportunity to use them on a regular basis, the Department of Biochemistry also keeps copies of them in the Part I book collection of the Colman library (in the Biochemistry Hopkins building, Downing Site).
  • Selected books may be borrowed overnight from this library collection; others may be consulted during the hours that the Biochemistry Department is open (08:30-17:00, Monday – Thursday, 08:30–16:00 Friday).
  • There is limited seating in the library for Part I students and we have to give priority to Biochemistry students on the Part II and Part III courses. The Genetics Department Library also has reserved copies available for consultation but not for loan.
