First Cycle
Objectives of the Course
It is very important to understand chemical reactions and recognize functions of elements in the human biological systems. All reactions in biological system carry out cycles for a purpose. Enzymes as a catalysts are very important for living systems in these reactions. For these reasons, it is purposed to give information on bioinorganic chemistry in the first cycle education.
