History of Biochemistry

The subject mainly focuses on molecular design of life. The goal of Biochemistry course is to describe structure, organization and function of cells in molecular terms, Therefore, the course includes lectures, tutorials, team-based learning, self directed learning and laboratory work. Biochemical aspects of molecular genetics and molecular basis of function of major constituents of cells and tissues are emphasized. The section of molecular biology of the cell also covers the cell cycle control, the molecular basis of cancer, and genetic diseases. The metabolism of carbohydrate, lipids, proteins nucleic acids and metabolic regulation of normal cells as well as changes occurring in diseases are discussed.

Integrated aspects of biochemistry including clinical correlation, the chemistry of blood, water and electrolytes and acid-base balance, molecular endocrinology, food and nutrition, digestion and absorption of essential nutrients are emphasized as essential aspects of biochemistry instruction.

Lecture units are usually assessed by written exam (multiple choice and essay-based), which are held at the end of an academic semester (1 ½ year course) during February and March. Practical units are usually assessed by written exam including laboratory test.
