What Stockton University says about their program:
"Biochemistry/Molecular Biology (BCMB) represents a rapidly growing discipline that bridges the chemical and biological sciences. The rapid development of this field has been due to advancement of laboratory techniques that involve the use of protein and nucleic acids such as DNA. With the advent of genomics and proteomics, it is necessary to now link all of these cellular components.
Knowledge of this field was always necessary for those interested in medical science and it has become increasingly important for those interested in the pharmaceutical and forensics fields. The program offerings, as well as the faculty expertise, reflect the combined chemical and biological basis for this field. Introductory courses in both biology and chemistry are required. Since it is such an experimental science, the program emphasizes laboratory skills and use of instruments and equipment to prepare students for employment or for study toward a variety of advanced degrees.
