Applied Bioscience with Biochemistry/ Environmental Science

Biochemistry is a discipline with a long history, bridging the gap between chemistry and biology. Many of the fundamental principles of biological science were discovered as a result of biochemical techniques and experiments. Modern biochemistry embraces many new developments in molecular biology and genetics. Environmental issues are at the forefront of public concern and decision-making at local, national and international levels. With Biochemistry We place a strong emphasis on the practical aspects of bio-chemistry and you will gain experience in a range of important, modern techniques including DNA and RNA analysis, protein characterisation and immunoassay techniques. This provision is complemented by studying cell biology, genetics and physiology. This extensive training in biochemical techniques will prepare you for employment opportunities across a range of companies in areas such as the biotechnology industry. Biochemistry may be combined with several other subjects enabling you to focus your interests and degree title. With Environmental Science The relationship of organisms to their physical environment can be studied at levels of organisation from molecules and cells to populations, communities and the biosphere. Topics studied will include the roles/functions of biomolecules, cells, tissues, organs, whole organisms and their environments. Themes of biodiversity, functional processes in ecosystems and human impacts on the biosphere are also covered. Additional topics may also include conservation, microbiology, animal behaviour, pest management and/or continued studies in terrestrial and aquatic ecology. Fieldwork is incorporated in several modules. Development of detailed skills will depend on the choice of modules, but graduates can be expected to have expertise in various fields of biology, with an emphasis on applied aspects, biodiversity and its conservation and ecosystem and environmental processes.
