- Course Enrolment Limitations
- The course is also offered to the students of the fields other than those the course is directly associated with.
- Fields of study the course is directly associated with
- there are 11 fields of study the course is directly associated with, display
- Course objectives
- The students should understand at the end of the course the basic methods of disintegration of animal, vegetal and microbial tissues, methods of isolation, purification of enzymes and biopolymers, determination of purity and molecular properties of enzymes, spectroscopic, electrochemical and physical methods of analysis in biochemistry.
- Learning outcomes
- At the end of this course the students should not only theoretically understand but be able practically apply the methods of disintegration of animal, vegetal and microbial tissues, methods of isolation, purification of proteins, nucleic acids and other biopolymers, methods for determination their purity and molecular properties, spectroscopic, electrochemical and physical methods of analysis in biochemistry. They should be able to apply these knowledges in their scientific research working on bachelor, master and PhD theses and finally during their following employment as well.
