The course aims to enable the student to know and understand the macromolecules of biological interest. The student must understand and be able to describe:
1) the structure of the molecules,
2) how biological molecules interact and react,
3) the functions performed by the molecules that make up the cell, seen as an elementary unit of living matter,
3) fundamental aspects of cellular metabolism by locating the reactions’site within the cell.
At the end of the course, the student have to demonstrate knowledge and understanding about the biological strategies and interdependence goals between the various phases of metabolism (anabolism, intermediate metabolism and catabolism). The student must acquire an overview of the cellular metabolic processes and their connection with energy consumption and production.
The student must be able to apply the knowledge and comprehension skills acquired in carrying out its training activities.
