This course will provide students with foundation studies in the principles of biochemistry, providing the skills and knowledge to support more advanced studies.The course begins with an introduction to the cellular environment and considers the interactions that stabilise biological macromolecules. This is followed by studying: the structure and function of proteins and enzymes and techniques for their isolation and purification; the composition of biological membranes; the structure of nucleic acids and their packaging within cells; mechanisms for synthesis, modification and turnover of nucleic acids and proteins.

Note: Due to the Job-ready Graduates Package new funding clusters and contribution amounts will take effect in the 2021 academic year. Grandfathering arrangements will be in place for students who would see an increase in their contribution amounts. Under these arrangements, students who commenced their course of study before 1 January 2021 facing increased student contribution amounts for a unit, will instead have their student contribution and Australian Government contribution amounts remain as they were under the previous arrangements (with existing rates being indexed by CPI each year). If continuing students are enrolled in units that will see their student contribution amount lowered, their student contributions will be the lowered amount
