This Biochemistry online course is ideal preparation for students thinking of studying biochemistry, medicine, and related subjects at university, exploring a range of academic theory and practical methods.Online CourseInstant Start!4-6 hours studyAges 16+
This course includes:
Biochemistry is, in essence, the study of life. It looks at the chemical processes that take place within living organisms and which are essential for life, offering us a fascinating insight into how our bodies function on a molecular level. Such processes include the actions of DNA, the burning of carbohydrates to power our muscles, or the carrying of oxygen by haemoglobin. Although a relatively young science, biochemistry is rapidly becoming one of the most popular scientific fields for study, and is an extremely exciting subject to pursue at university level and beyond.
Throughout this online Biochemistry course we will immerse ourselves in the sub-cellular world, exploring a range of molecules and their interactions within the body in order to understand the processes that are integral for life. We will look in detail at the structure of molecules and how this determines their function within living cells, exploring such essential molecules as DNA, RNA, proteins, lipids, and carbohydrates. The understanding gained from this tutorial will stand you in good stead for any undergraduate application and will help you to start thinking about some of the major issues within this broad and stimulating subject.
