Learning objectives
- The student must learn notions on the structure and function of the main macromolecules and cellular differentiation as well as the molecular basis of the expression of genetic information, its regulation and the transmission mobility of hereditary characters;
- It must also acquire chemical, biological and biochemical knowledge at the base of life sciences, including fundamental chemical reactions, biochemical processes and the cellular and sub-cellular structures assigned to them, the modes of transmission and expression of genetic information and fundamental dynamics of the processes that regulate the life of living organisms.
Expected learning outcomes
Acquiring chemical, biological and biochemical knowledge at the base of life sciences. Acquisition of essential concepts to be able to follow with success lessons of the following years.
