Mount Holyoke offers advanced-level biochemistry courses in such subjects as protein biochemistry and cellular metabolism, DNA and RNA structures, and special topics in biochemistry and molecular biology. In addition, students may conduct independent research with any member of the Biochemistry Committee, and (upon approval) with members of the biological sciences and chemistry departments.
