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
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.
Should teaching be carried out in mixed mode or remotely, it may be necessary to introduce changes with respect to previous statements, in line with the programme planned and outlined in the syllabus.
Learning assessment may also be carried out on line, should the conditions require it.”
In particular the course of Biochemistry will be devoted to clarificy molecular meccanism envolved during the study of ormonal and metabolic approaches in order to better underline the cross-talk between molecules that play a pivotal role in understanding the targets for the objectives to be analyzed set by biochemistry. and molecular biology.
