Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to apply basic biochemical terms that serve as a knowledge base for tasks in bioinformatics, and to explain the most important biochemical processes (structure and function of the cell and its components, function and regulation of the main metabolic pathways)

Subject of course

I. Basic concepts of biochemistry (structure of the cell, characteristics of amino acids and peptides, structure and function of proteins, enzymes and biocatalysis, nomenclature and classification of enzymes, structure and characteristics of nucleotides and nucleic acids, structure and characteristics of carbohydrates and polysaccharides, structure and characteristics of lipids and fats, coenzymes and vitamins) II. Metabolism (metabolism of carbohydrates and gain of energy, metabolism of fats and amino acids, principles of protein biosynthesis) III. Cellular processes (principles of regulation of metabolic pathways, cell compartimentation and transport, signal transduction)

Additional information

This course may be held in either an online or presence format, in line with rules and regulations put forward by the federal government and/or TU Wien administration, in response to the evolving Covid19 situation. This may include a hybrid system where, for example, lectures and written exams are offered in an online format, and practical evaluations are offered in reduced groups on campus. Should such changes become necessary during the semester, this may lead to schedule changes, in particular, this may lead to changed dates for practical and written assessments (exams). For online written exams, the assessment/grading scheme will remain unchanged. As far as possible exams will, however, be held in person on campus.
