    Biochemistry is a basic science devoted to the discovery and explanation of the molecular processes that occur in living systems. Consequently, biochemistry forms a foundation for all aspects of biology, both basic and applied. The objects of biochemists’ studies span a wide spectrum of living species ranging from bacteria, plants and insects to mammals — including humans. In essence, we study chemical reactions involved in all processes carried out by living cells or multicellular organisms.


    Biochemists find opportunities in varied fields. In a research laboratory, a biochemist might be involved in studies on factors affecting the health of cells or organisms, isolation and identification of cellular components or compounds, analysis for constituents of cells or genetic engineering. The biochemist might perform physical studies on the properties of biological molecules and their roles in living systems or utilize tools of molecular biology and bioinformatics to search for genes encoding proteins and RNAs, conserved domains and assign functions to novel genes in newly emerging genomic databases.

    A degree in biochemistry also may be used as preparation for other fields. The biochemistry curriculum is a sound choice for premedical and pre-dental students. A biochemistry degree can provide the foundation for a position as sales or technical representative for firms that handle pharmaceuticals, scientific equipment,
    agricultural chemicals or biotechnology products. Additionally, it may serve as a bridge to specialization in fields such as law or energy.

    USA requirements for international students

    Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

    After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

    Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
