Objectives of the Course
The aim of this course is to sound knowledge on the role of biomolecules constituting the basis and maintainability of cellular functions and their biosynthesis and storage, the role of blood cells, the fundamental physiologic mechanisms of inorganic compounds. The laboratory pratices aim to introduce quantitative and qualitative analysis of biomolecules and solidfy the theorical knowledge with practicing these methods by using biological materials.
