Biochemistry is the branch of science which deals with the study of chemical process within and related to living organisms. This branch of science is a combination of biology and chemistry which uses chemical methods and techniques to find, understand and solve biological problems. The main objective of biochemistry is the complete understanding at the molecular level of all the chemical processes that maintain the life and thus can find explanations for the causes of many diseases in humans, animals and plants. Bachelor of Science or B.Sc. in Biochemistry is a graduate program with three years and six semesters of study. This program teaches various scientific aspects of life science and chemical science. The course provides sound knowledge in theoretical and practical aspects of biochemistry in order to understand the concepts of molecular genetics.
