Leerdoelen 1. describe the structure and function of DNA
2. describe how proteins are structured and function.
3. explain how enzyme perform catalysis
4. describe different components of cell membranes and how is forms a biological membrane.
5. perform some bioinformatic analyses, such as structure analysis & visualisation, sequence similarity searches (such as BLAST) and multiple sequence alignments.
6. explain how various commonly used biochemical techniques function.
Omschrijving The Biochemistry course provides in basic knowledge in biochemistry. The course is based on the book Biochemistry (Berg et al., 9th edition). It explores the function and mechanism of essential biomolecules, covering DNA, RNA, proteins, carbohydrates and lipids. The structure and function of DNA and proteins will be discussed in detail. Except for emphasis on the theory of (1) the mechanism of transcription & translation, and (2) the structure & function of proteins, the course will also focus on the experimental techniques used in biochemical research.
