Synopsis:

The course is aimed at providing students with the basic knowledge of biochemistry, the structure and properties of biochemically important substances that make up living organisms, and the principles of metabolic and energy transformations in organisms. Emphasis is placed on understanding the importance of these substances to the life of organisms and linking the knowledge gained to the wider context. During the lectures, students will get to know the basics of biochemistry of organ systems and some important pathologies Attention is also paid to the biochemistry of vision.
