The focus of the course is to provide to the student, in a preliminary step, a general context for chemical concepts needed to the understating biochemistry and biological systems. Later, the module of Biochemistry ensures that student learns the concepts fundamental of bioenergetics, metabolism processes. The module of Biology is devoted to the understanding of the cellular structure and function, focusing on the flow of genetic information.
To understand the fundamental concepts of general and organic chemistry required to the comprehension of the structure of biologically active molecules. To understand the essentials of metabolism and of bioenergetics
