The course presents the fundamental properties of nucleic acids and proteins. It conveys basic knowledge about biologically active molecules, their properties and their function. An introduction to bioinformatics is provided.



Different topics will be discussed :

  • Structure and function of proteins
  • Nucleic acids and the genetic code
  • Regulation of gene expression
  • Introduction to enzymology
  • Molecular biology techniques to analyse and modify nucleic acids and proteins

The intoduction to bioinformatics gives insight into:

  • Protein 3D structure and genome analysis
