About Agricultural Biochemistry
Masters degrees in Agricultural Biochemistry explore the relationship between biological and chemical processes at the molecular level of living organisms, and the impact of these processes on wider agricultural actions.
Research based Masters degrees such as MRes and MPhil courses are becoming increasingly popular in this field, as methods adapt to new technological advances. Many programmes are also highly interdisciplinary. Entry requirements typically include a relevant undergraduate degree in Agriculture, Biology or Chemistry.
Masters degrees in Agricultural Biochemistry provide a large realm of possibilities for agricultural research. Explorations of pathology, genetics, chemical compounds and molecular processes allow researchers to better understand the processes that influence issues such as yield when growing crops and health when rearing livestock.
Mainstream industries, particularly the agri-food business, rely heavily on individuals with in-depth knowledge of the correlation between food quality and public health, and how these molecular processes correlate with the two.
Careers in this field include positions in government bodies and agencies, working on a national or international level as technicians, researchers, or consultants. Other roles may focus more on commerce, such as quality assurance management, and health and safety inspection.
