Summary

Biochemistry is a key discipline in the Life Sciences. Biological Chemistry I and II are two tightly interconnected courses that aims to understand in molecular terms the processes that make life possible.

Content

We need to understand biological macromolecules at the atomic level, as well as their energetic properties and interplay between them. With these insights, we will dissect basic macromolecular structure and how it translates into biological function. Among the major types of biological macromolecules, including nucleic acids, proteins, lipids and glycans, we will put a main emphasis on proteins - the workhorses of cells.

Keywords
