Syllabus
Prerequisites: Base-level knowledge on chemistry and mathematics
Target skills and knowledge: Through theoretical lectures and practical exercises, students will acquire know-how on fundamental chemistry. The resolution of numerical exercises will also make the student familiar with a scientific approach towards various topics. Gaining knowledge on the structure and function relationships in biological macromolecules, on the metabolism and the strategies of metabolic regulation.
Examination methods: The examination of students will be carried out through written tests accounting for numerical exercises and questions to be answered with a brief text production. Students will have to pass two separate written exams, dealing with the two parts of the program.
Assessment criteria: Students' preparation will be evaluated considering the acquisition of specific concepts of general and inorganic chemistry, as well as the ability to use them for the resolution of numerical exercises. Knowledge on biochemistry will be evaluated considering the understanding of specific topics of the discipline, along with the capability to use concepts in an integrated way.
