In the frame of the Lab practicals Biochemistry 2. theoretical topics will be also discussed. This „theory and lab” will be offered for each students in order to be prepared better for the midtem and/or oral exams.

 

The topics of the „theory and lab” are as follows:

21st February: Regulation of blood sugar concentration

7th March: Biological oxidation, respiratory chain, oxidative phosphorylation and citrate cycle

21st March: Fatty acids and lipids

  1. Seminars (not compulsory) will be offered for the students who have not passed the midterm and/or oral exam of Biochemistry. 2. Each topics of Biochemistry 2. will be discussed on these seminars. The 1st seminar will be held at 15 on 26th February Monday in the Lecture Hall of Chemistry, and then on every second Monday. Contact person of Seminars: Chanett Nordli. If you would like to take part, please send an email for us: Chanett and also me.

The dates of the Seminars in Biochemistry 2.: 26th February. 12th March, 19th March, 9th April, 23th April

 

The topics of the Seminars are as follows:

26th February: Carbohydrate metabolism

12th March: Amino acid metabolism

19th March: Lipid metabolism

9th April: Organs and ruminants
