Mary K. Campbell, Shawn O. Farrell, Owen M. McDougal: Biochemistry, 9th Edition. ISBN: 978-1-305-96113-5. Chapters 1, 3, 4, 6-12, 15-20.
Lecture material in Tabula.
5 in-class exams.
The total accumulated points of the in-class exams will form the final grade of the course. Extra assignments or class activity may give some extra points.
In the end of the course the very final in-class exam is held in order to rise the grade.
Re-take exams for the whole course:
After the very final in-class exam re-take exams can be taken twice during the general re-take exam dates. The re-take exams are comprehensive and points of the in class exams are not valid (i.e. the repeat exam comprises 100 % of the course grade).
