DescriptionThe modern era of biochemistry has been transformed by the recent development of instruments which can generate vast amounts of information about entire genomes or thousands of proteins or metabolites. One of our biggest challenges in biochemistry is the development of tools to analyze and manage this flood of data.

The Computational Biochemistry program was developed to provide both training in computer science and a solid foundation in biochemistry. Students are exposed to the core areas of biology and chemistry, including genetics, cell biology, organic chemistry and analytical chemistry, as well as general and experimental biochemistry, bioinformatics and molecular modelling. Optional courses allow you to focus on areas such as molecular genetics, pharmaceutical drug design, functional genomics and protein structure and function.
