Learning Objectives

The course of Biochemistry aims to provide to the students the basis to
understanding the physical, chemical and biological contexts in which
molecules, reactions and metabolic pathways play their role. Particular
attention will be given to the structure and function relationship of the
major classes of macromolecules as also to the metabolic regulation at
the molecular and cellular level.
In order to stimulate student interest the topics will be explained
emphasizing the logical and consequential interconnections emphasizing
Inglese
the clinical aspects and introducing experimental methods.
At the end of the present course the student will understand the
structure-function relationships of the main biological molecules,
essential biochemical mechanisms that underlie a proper metabolic
function and the consequences of their alterations.
