ADVANCED TOPICS IN BIOCHEMISTRY AND CELL BIOLOGY
Credit points: 15
Biochemistry and molecular biology are concerned with the function of biological systems at the molecular level. Biochemistry is central to most studies in biology and life sciences and is directly related to medical and agricultural research and biotechnology.
