The science of biochemistry seeks to understand how organisms function by investigating enzyme reactions, mechanisms of gene regulation, chemical signaling pathways, and cellular structure at the molecular level. Biochemists study how animals, plants and bacteria make use of energy to grow, compete with other organisms and reproduce. Many of the biochemist’s findings are of direct relevance to humanity—they help us understand and treat disease, improve food production and find new techniques to produce valuable products such as vitamins and antibiotics. Experimenting is a key component of learning science at Carleton. In first year, your classes will typically have a lecture and a lab or tutorial component. Each lab will take three hours per week, so if you choose three of these lab courses you could have nine hours of hands-on experimentation every week.
