FST Postgraduate


Biochemistry is a broad field of study that explores the chemical processes and interactions that occur within living organisms. Biochemistry research focuses on topics such as the structure and function of biomolecules, metabolic pathways, genetics and gene expression, and the mechanisms of cellular signaling and communication. This research has applications in fields such as medicine, agriculture, biotechnology, and environmental science, and it plays a critical role in understanding and improving human health and the natural world around us.
