Course Description

The subject (biochemistry) does not aim at giving comprehensive biochemistry knowledge. Instead it would like to give a short overview of the biochemical pathways and their connections. The first part gives basic knowledge from the field of basic cell biology. The second part focuses to the basic principles of enzymology and bioenergetics. This part gives background to the metabolic processes discussed in the third block. The energy producing processes such as the oxidative phosphorylation and the photosynthesis is embedded into this metabolic part. This metabolic part is followed by the forth, last part which discuss the basics of molecular biology.
