Last update: Kubová Petra Ing. (06.03.2019)
The subject forms an extention of the basic course of Biochemistry I. It should bring students to a wider understanding of biological and biochemical consequences. Therefore, the topics of lectures reflect knowledge from different areas of biochemistry (structure of biopolymers, molecular genetics, metabolism by bioanalytical methods etc).
Aim of the course -
Last update: Kubová Petra Ing. (06.03.2019)

Students will be able to:

navigate the biochemical literature and understand the biochemical context, reflected currently in all fields of food technology, agriculture and medicine;

his knowledge will also allow him to study in master's and doctoral programs in which the biochemistry is required as an obvious prerequisite.
