Learning Outcomes
The aim of this course is learning and understanding -the biochemistry of nucleic acids and particularly the biochemical mechanisms for replication, expression and regulation of genetic information. -the biochemical and molecular basis of the immune system, sensory organs, and certain other tissues (e.g., connective tissue, blood, muscle tissue, liver, CNS, etc.) and their link to the biochemical basis of diseases of the respective tissues.
General Competences
  • Apply knowledge in practice
  • Retrieve, analyse and synthesise data and information, with the use of necessary technologies
  • Work autonomously
  • Work in teams
  • Advance free, creative and causative thinking
Course Content (Syllabus)
