Learning outcomes

The Integrated Course of Structural and Functional Sciences of the Biomolecules intends to provide the basic knowledge of Chemistry and Biochemistry. In particular: - Knowledge of the scientific method and possible practical effects in laboratories. - Knowledge of the main concepts of General and Organic Chemistry. - Further attention to the notions of Organic Chemistry preparatory to Biochemistry. - Knowledge on the structure-function relationships of the main classes of biological macromolecules and on metabolic regulation at the molecular level. - Knowledge about the interconnections existing between the different biochemical processes and the energy transformations connected to them. At the end of the course, the student / student must demonstrate to have acquired terminologies and notions useful for a critical analysis of chemical processes and vital biochemical phenomena in order to achieve autonomy of critical evaluation of the processes themselves, and appreciate their applicability in laboratory practice. MODULO CHIMICA E PROPEDEUTICA BIOCHIMICA The Chemistry course provides knowledge of: - The scientific method, underlined to explain phenomena occurring in the laboratories. - The main notions of General and Organic Chemistry. - Further attention is spent for notions, especially of Organic Chemistry, which are preparatory for the study of the Biochemistry. At the end of the Course, students should demonstrate to have acquired the proper scientific terms and notions in order to critically and autonomously evaluate the chemical processes and their application in the laboratory practice. MODULO BIOCHIMICA. The course is mostly focused on the relationship between structure and function of biological macromolecules and the main metabolic pathways in which they are involved. The fundamental objective is to stimulate the student's interest in biomolecular science by highlighting interconnections between biochemical processes and related energetics.At the end of the Course the student should demonstrate to have acquired the proper scientific terms and notions in order to critically and autonomously evaluate the biochemical processes of life.
