The Biochemistry Minor
The Biochemistry program at Carleton rests on the close cooperation between the Departments of Biology and Chemistry. Emerging as a recognized discipline early in the last century, biochemistry has grown into a vast subject that spans several established disciplines.
It serves as the link between the fields of chemistry and biology, and even as it flourishes at the interface of these subjects, it also holds a strong position within the two traditional disciplines. Fundamentally, biochemistry seeks to establish an understanding of biological phenomena at a molecular level.
