Biochemistry and intermediary metabolism
Information from the course leader
Hej och Välkommen till kursen Biokemi och intermediär ämnesomsättning BI1390!
I november kör vi igång med denna spännande kurs där du kommer att få lära dig massor om bland annat cellen, livets biomolekyler och om metabolismen. Kursen kommer att ges delvis på plats på Campus Ultuna, men vissa delar kommer ges via digitala plattformar, dvs via Zoom. Schemat finns upplagt på websidan, där finns mer information med specifikt vilka moment vi kommer att beröra under kursens gång samt om dessa moment är förlagda på Campus eller digitalt.
Mer information kommer såklart i samband med kursstarten!
Vi ses då!

ObjectivesThe course intends to give basic knowledge, and laboratory training in chemistry, biochemistry and molecular cell biology.
On completion of the course, the student should be able to:
- account for basic concepts and carry out calculations within stoichiometry, chemical equilibrium and basic thermodynamics,
- account for structure and function of DNA, RNA and the flow of genetic information,
- identify and account for the cell most important biomolecules regarding structure and function,
- use and explain certain biochemical methods and account for experimental results,
- account for the cell structure with its anabolic and catabolic processes
- account for metabolic interaction in different nutritional conditions,
- perform basic laboratory components with safety and precision.
ContentThe course intends to give basic chemical and biochemical concepts and processes such as various types of chemical binding, stoichiometry, acid/base equilibrium and thermodynamics, structure and function of the molecules of life and enzymatic catalysis and kinetics. The structure of the cell, the function of organelles, membrane and transport of different subjects through membrane. The metabolism and bioenergetics from a nutritional perspective of the cell and the body.
In the course, lectures, laboratory work, seminars and group exercises according to student-activating teaching are included. Compulsory components occur within e g exercises, seminar, group exercises and laboratory sessions.
Following general skills are trained in the course: written and oral communication, formulate laboratory reports, analysis, problem-solving and critical thinking.
Formats and requirements for examinationPassed written and oral examination. Approved participation in compulsory components.
- If the student fails a test, the examiner may give the student a supplementary assignment, provided this is possible and there is reason to do so.
- If the student has been granted special educational support because of a disability, the examiner has the right to offer the student an adapted test, or provide an alternative assessment.
- If changes are made to this course syllabus, or if the course is closed, SLU shall decide on transitional rules for examination of students admitted under this syllabus but who have not yet passed the course.
- For the examination of a degree project (independent project), the examiner may also allow the student to add supplemental information after the deadline. For more information on this, please refer to the regulations for education at Bachelor's and Master's level.
- The right to take part in teaching and/or supervision only applies to the course date to which the student has been admitted and registered on.
- If there are special reasons, the student may take part in course components that require compulsory attendance at a later date. For more information on this, please refer to the regulations for education at Bachelor's and Master's level.
