|The course accompanies the “Biochemie” course and covers similar topics (properties of biomolecules, metabolism, signal transduction, motor proteins etc.). However, in this course these topics will be covered from the perspective of the pathological consequences that arise when these molecules and process do not function properly.
|The course's detailed learning goals are available on the course's Moodle page.
|There is no traditional script for this course. Instead the course is supported by a Moodle page through which students have access to all necessary texts, exercises, videos and activities.
|The essential course material will be available on the course's Moodle Page in the form of scripts and lesson handouts.
The course does not have an "official" textbook, but students may find a general reference book on the topic interesting. For this purpose the text "Löffler/Petrides Biochemie und Pathobiochemie" ISBN 978-3-642-17971-6 may be interesting.
|Prerequisites / Notice
|The course builds on the content of the "Biochemie" course, which runs parallel to this course as well as on the courses "Chemie für Mediziner", "Pharmakologie für Mediziner" and "Molekulare Genetik und Zellbiologie" from the fall semester.
