Courses

Biological chemistry I

Biochemistry is a key discipline for the Life Sciences. Biological Chemistry I and II are two tightly interconnected courses that aim to describe and understand in molecular terms the processes that make life possible.

Structural biology

The main focus of this course is on the molecular interactions defining the structure, dynamics and function of biological systems. The principal experimental and computational techniques used in structural biology, as well as molecular modeling and design will be introduced and practiced.

Scientific literature analysis in computational molecular biology

The goal of this course is to learn to analyze a scientific paper critically, asking whether the data presented support the conclusions that are drawn. The analysis is presented in the form of a summary presentation and critical, constructive assessments of the paper.
