Biochemistry and Natural Products
Bachelor of Science
SUNY-ESF offers study options in BioChemistry and Natural Products Chemistry at the BS, MS and Ph.D. levels.
The courses and programs of study are aimed at preparing the scientists of the future.
This option stresses a chemical approach to problems in the life and health sciences. Students take advanced courses in natural products chemistry, natural biopolymers, spectroscopy, and biochemistry. Professional electives in botany, chemical ecology, genetics and molecular biology strengthen connections in the life and health sciences. Research areas include the elucidation of chemical signals by which organisms communicate with each other, the role of trace metals in the growth of microorganisms, and the origin and function of biologically active natural compounds.
