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

In Biological Chemistry II we will focus on cell metabolism to understand how the molecules that constitute living beings are produced, modified and used for energetic purposes. A specific emphasis will be put on the understanding of organizing principles in metabolism and on the regulatory circuits living beings have evolved to control their metabolic outputs.
