The aim of this course is the training in nucleic acid biochemistry and particularly on the biochemical mechanisms by which the genetic information is replicated and expressed. Also we focus on the teaching of the biochemical and molecular basis of the immune system, sensory organs, and certain other tissues (e.g., connective tissue, blood, muscle tissue, etc.) as well as the teaching of the biochemical basis of the respective diseases.
Course Content (Syllabus)
