Understanding Our Natural World

The Department of Genetics and Biochemistry is dedicated to Clemson’s overall mission of discovery, learning and engagement. Genetics and biochemistry are keys to understanding the natural world. Our faculty and students use these keys to solve complex challenges and work with all types of organisms, including microbes, plants and humans. Major foci of research include genetic disorders, genetic improvement of crops, strategies for drug development and eukaryotic pathogens. Our academic programs lead to degrees at the undergraduate, masters and doctoral (Ph.D.) levels.
