Course description

The master's program offers a unique chance to dive into both basic research and application-oriented projects. In biochemistry, you'll explore the dynamics and processes of protein genesis and their interactions within and outside cells. These processes are crucial for understanding and developing therapies for neurodegenerative diseases and tumors. Molecular biology focuses on molecular processes at the cellular and organismal levels, paving the way for advancements in genomic research, cell and systems biology, and plant and animal physiology. You'll tackle current research questions in both biochemistry and molecular biology, gaining deep knowledge of biological databases and internet-based resources. You'll also learn to apply systems biology to analyze and interpret high-throughput data. Additionally, you'll master various manipulation and detection techniques and experiment with new methods in nanobiotechnology. This program equips you with the skills and knowledge to excel in the ever-evolving fields of biochemistry and molecular biology.
