Learning outcomes
The main goal of this course is to introduce students into molecular basis of life. Students will learn how biomolecules are synthetised and transformed in the cells and how is the structure of biomolecules connected with their function and regulation processes.in living cells. We will discuss living processes in cells on molecular level and their relation to phylogenesis and ontogenesis. During the course we will also introduce basic molecular research methods and their importance in the progress of modern biotechnologies.
