Course objectives
The objective of the lecture is getting to the students of biology the basic knowledges from biochemistry. Content of the first part includes properties and functions of proteins, nucleic acids, carbohydrates and lipids. The second part is oriented onto enzymology. The last part is dedicated in metabolism and bioenergetics.

Assessment methods
The final exam is in the form of written test, which contains three questions, one from the static biochemistry, one from enzymology and one from metabolism and bioenergetics. The test also contains four chemical formulas of basic biochemical compounds, student should recognise them and write something about their functions. The time for the test is one hour, the grade are A to F.
