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.
