UE Biochemistry 1 - BIO131 -

Diplômes intégrant cet élément pédagogique :


The different topics covered in the lectures concern nucleic acids (DNA, RNA), proteins, carbohydrates and lipids. In each case their structures, properties and in vivo assemblies will be presented to the students, all in relation to their different biological roles.

During the tutorial sessions, students will work on different exercises allowing them to detail and deepen the notions discussed in class. In addition, a significant part of the tutorials will be devoted to important reminders on concentration calculations and spectrophotometry.

During the practical sessions, students are introduced to laboratory materials and techniques by carrying out two electrophoresis, one of nucleic acids and the other of proteins.
