Learning outcomes:

After completing the course, the student:

1. Understands the structure and properties of the basic types of biological macromolecules and their components (K_W04 Bl1).

2. Understands the importance of experimental work in the field of biochemistry, and knows the principles on which the basic biochemical techniques are based (K_W15 Bl1).

3. Applies basic biochemical techniques (K_U1 Bl1).

4. Can analyze the results obtained with the use of biochemical methods (K-U04 Bl1)

5. Demonstrates the ability to work in a team in a biochemical laboratory (K_K07 Bl1).

Assessment methods and assessment criteria:

Classes are credited if the student:

- participated in at least 85% of the sessions (meetings),

- worked during the classes in a way that allows to positively assess the knowledge, skills and social competences obtained during the classes,

- passed the final test.

Conditions for passing the exam (course):

The condition for admitting to the exam is passing the classes.

The exam is in writing (test); the material constituting the content of the lectures is assessed.
