During the first term you will participate in two mandatory modules (A and B).
This eight week course (Module A) with theoretical and practical exercises on the basics of biochemistry, molecular cell biology and microbiology combines the modules "Biochemistry" and "Molecular Cell Biology". Especial emphasis will be to integrate the molecular aspects in these fields into a general understanding of chemical principles in living processes. During the first three weeks of theory (lectures with integrated exercises) the basics will be taught. The following four weeks are mainly dedicated to laboratory exercises (three days per week) with additional lectures and theoretical exercises. During the last week the knowledge and its application will be strengthened in further tutorials. Theoretical and lab exercises will be held in parallel groups. Module A consists of the following modules:
- Basics in biochemistry and molecular cell biology (see topics and timetables)
- Methods in biochemistry and molecular cell biology(see topics and timetables)
- Basics in biomolecular medicine
You get 21 credit points for this module.
