The program at a glance
These slides only serve as guidelines for your study!
Biochemistry books and scheme are available on the web.
This is a course of bioCHEMISTRY: this means the knowledge of the structures is fundamental to an understanding of the behaviour of molecules of biological interest.
No structures, no comprehension.
Particularly for the metabolic cycles it is necessary to study from a textbook (in any language) and to learn the chemical structure of the intermediates of the main cycles
2. Water and interactions in water solution
3. Amino acids and peptide bond
7. Protein properties and their role in foods
9. Carbohydrate and polysaccharides
10. Sugar properties
