Learn about the molecules that make up living organisms with a minor in biochemistry at the University of Minnesota. 

Biochemistry minor

Through the biochemistry minor at the University of Minnesota, you can study molecules found in living organisms, particularly proteins, nucleic acids, lipids, and carbohydrates. Biochemistry minors focus their studies on the biosynthesis, metabolism, function, and regulation of these molecules of life.

The biochemistry minor is available to CBS students pursuing a degree other than biochemistry or biology. It is also available to non-CBS students.
