Course objectives
Biochemistry for bacherols follows secondary school chemistry and biochemistry broadens the subject considerably to the level required for the study of successive subjects. The aim of the subject is to provide a comprehensive view of the basic metabolic processes in the human body related to the functioning of the human organism. It gets information on the production and use of energy in the human body, the structure and synthesis of the main molecules, the main regulatory mechanisms that maintain homeostasis. Students will obtain knowledge about the biochemical nature of the most important disorders of metabolism and bases of their clinico-biochemical examination, taking into account their specialization.
Learning outcomes
After the completition of the subject student will understand physico-chemical processes important for biological systems, He is able to explain basic principles of nutrient metabolism, discusses the principles of regulation. Understands how energy is generated, used, and stored by the various organs of the body.Describes the biochemical proceses typical for main organs and tissues in the body (heart, liver, kidney muscle, nerve tissue). He is able to explain basic principles of homeostasis. He is familiar with the effects of major hormones and the principle of their action through receptors. Characterizes the composition and function of the main body fluids. Understands the processes of hemocoagulation.

Teaching methods
Teaching form are lectures, 2 hours per week.
Assessment methods
The course is concluded by the oral examination.Examination is composed of two parts. First part is a simple test on a computer, the second part is oral.The test includes 25 basal questions from the whole content of the recommended book, including chapters 1-4, calculations of concentration, pH and osmolarity. Only those students who gain 13 correct answers at a minimum will be permitted to sit for the oral examination.The model test is available on IS MUNI in the ROPOT section. List of questions and other instructions you will find in the section Study materials of the course.
